Online streaming during Covid-19: Master Harold …. And The Boys

The Fugard Theatre in Cape Town is celebrating its 10th birthday in 2020. A jam packed programme was scheduled for this year. The launch production was Athol Fugard’s play, Master Harold …. And The Boys which was due to run from February 4 to March 21, 2020. Covid-19 intervened and because of the national lockdown in South Africa,  the curtain came down early at the theatre and the season was interrupted .

The enterprising folk at the Fugard Theatre arranged a film recording and it is available to watch – at no charge – see details below.


I was fortunate to see this superb production and gave it a five star review. See the review on this website, TheCapeRobyn.
