My Children My Africa

My Children! My Africa!


About the Show

Red Herring Productions takes on another beautiful piece by Athol Fugard – My Children! My Africa!

Generational conflict over the most effective means for ending apartheid in South Africa leads to an explosive confrontation between a gifted but impatient black township youth and his devoted but “old fashioned” black teacher. The unexpected involvement of a young white woman who befriends and learns from both men strips away the political trappings to reveal the human trauma at the heart of South Africa’s tragedy.
