The searing coming-of-age story that won Zakes Mokae a Tony Award and brought Danny Glover back to the New York stage for a Roundabout Theatre revival now finds its way to the stage of The 5 & Dime. Considered by many to be Fugard’s masterpiece, MASTER HAROLD… AND THE BOYS surrounds the life of a white teen who has grown up in the affectionate company of two black waiters working in his mother’s tea room in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. But when old family secrets stir up lingering demons, both “Master Harold” and “the Boys” are quickly reminded of their true loyalties.

Renowned dramatist Athol Fugard sets this “lyrical,”“shattering,”and “enduring” (New York Times) parable against the backdrop of 1950s South African apartheid as a stark reminder that institutional oppression often creates deep and lasting personal repercussions.

WHAT IS READER'S THEATRE?

Reader’s theatre was developed as an efficient and effective way to present literature in dramatic form without the effort and expense of mounting full productions. Reader's theatre often uses narration to serve as the framework of dramatic presentation; uses simple and suggestive rather than full stage sets; uses partial and suggestive or neutral and uniform rather than full costumes, and uses scripts openly in performance. Presenting plays as reader's theatre allows us at The 5 & Dime an opportunity to present scripts we otherwise wouldn't be able to produce because of budget limitations or size of cast requirements.

Ample free parking is available within a short walking distance of the theatre. Street parking at meters is free during production hours, as is the surface lot adjacent to Burrito Gallery, one block west of the theatre on Adams Street, between Ocean and Main.
