My Children! My Africa!

The Washington Post gave a favorable review to Studio Theatre's presentation of My Children! My Africe.

Fugard has composed on this occasion a tale that shifts ground in surprising fashion; it's the likability of the people he portrays, and the skill with which he allows a bitter reality to slowly encroach on a sunny setup, that make the work all the more compelling. The deceptively straightforward story revolves around the friendship between two students, a white teenage girl and a young black man her age. They are brought together by a black teacher in the Eastern Cape of the early 1980s who still believes that revolution can occur peacefully -- by means, in fact, of his very own classroom.

Can you tell I'm working through my clip file? Anyhow, think I'll do this at some point.
