My Children My Africa: Looking at apartheid through drama
My Children My Africa, by renowned playwright, novelist and director, Athol Fugard, will be staged on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th of May at the Roodepoort Theatre.
The play is currently a set work in the government syllabus, making the play a valuable complement to the learning schedule of students.
My Children My Africa is story is about generational conflict over the most effective ways of ending apartheid in South Africa. This leads to an explosive confrontation between a gifted but impatient township youth and his devoted but “old fashioned” teacher. The unexpected involvement of a young white woman who he befriends, and learns from, strips away the political trappings to reveal the human trauma at the heart of South Africa’s tragedy.
