My Children! My Africa!
Poignant play that grapples with South African apartheid
Athol Fugard's My Children! My Africa! has been nominated for four off West End awards for its humbling depiction of apartheid South Africa in 1984. Thami, a young, brilliant black man is torn between two opposing forces: violence and education, which in turn, may lead to liberation. The play questions whether violence should be met with violence, while also examining the power that words and ideas have to be able to instigate social change. Trafalgar Studios is London’s most exciting new venue and prides itself as a starting place for new productions to find their home in London. The theatre was Grade II listed by English Heritage in December 1996, noting "The auditorium has a decorative cohesion and prettiness rare in theatres of its day, and has the best surviving original fabric of this type of theatre". "Combines the urgency and import of Fugard's message with the delicacy of the complex relationships that bind the characters together... an excellent cast... utterly relevant." – The Stage "A perfect cast... a terrific production." – Remote Goat Recommended for ages 5 and up.
