My Children! My Africa! in USA CT plus discussion


Iain Fisher:
HartBeat Ensemble presents My Children! My Africa! from 9 Oct- 9 Sept 2022 at Carriage House Theater, Hartford, Connecticut, USA.

Directed by Melanie Dreyer-Lude and the performers are Brianna Joy Ford, Jelani Pitcher and Godfrey L. Simmons Jr.

"The great South African playwright Athol Fugard confronts the tragedy of apartheid in this compelling tale set in a segregated township in 1984. In the face of increasing racial tension, a humble and humane black teacher attempts to persuade his best (and most charismatic) student that education, not violence, is the answer to South Africa’s problems".

As well there is ENCOUNTERS: My Children! My Africa! "a special dialogue event that features small group discussions, on critical questions about the play, as well as feedback and engagement".  It is on 12 Oct 2022.
