presents "MASTER HAROLD"... AND THE BOYS A play byAthol Fugard Directed byRhodie Jackson  Friday, March 22 at 8pmSaturday, March 23 at 8pmSunday, March 24 at 2pm The 5 & Dime112 East Adams Streetin Downtown JacksonvilleDIRECTIONS Tickets are $10 and include all taxes and fees 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.

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.
