Port Elizabeth, South Africa — 1950. In a tea-shop owned by his parents, Harold does homework while two black men rehearse ballroom dancing. Hally and the men, who have long worked for his family, recall fond memories of times spent together as the young boy escaped his family life. But when news comes that the boy’s father is returning home, the personal becomes political. First produced in 1982, the play was initially banned in South Africa and has since become an enduring, modern classic that continues to speak to inequality and injustice.
