MY CHILDREN! MY AFRICA!
Written by Athol Fugard
Directed by Gary Yates
My Children! My Africa! by Tony Award-winning playwright Athol Fugard is set in segregated South Africa in 1985. In this three-character thriller, a humane black teacher tries to convince a favorite student that education, not violence, is the answer to the nation's problems.
Staged in conjunction with Georgia Tech's Africa-Atlanta Project, which fosters art, business and educational collaborations between Georgia's capital city and the African continent, this play is part of Theatrical Outfit's "Season of Compassion" and will inspire you and encourage dialogue that improves and furthers the human condition.
"Vacillates superbly between political parable and personal tragedy." – The Village Voice
