Port Elizabeth, South Africa — 1950. Seventeen-year-old Harold does his homework while two black men, who have long worked as servants for his family, clean the floors. As the day unfolds, the three reminisce fondly about times spent together, but when news comes that Harold’s alcoholic father is returning home, affections turn to anger, intimacies sour, and the personal becomes political. The play was initially banned in South Africa and has since become an enduring, modern classic that continues to speak to inequality and injustice.
