It took me several times to force myself through this. It reminded me of the horrible, boring, overracted, unnatural plays we had to watch in school. Not my cup of tea.

Fabulous Story!

Would you listen to Master Harold and the Boys again? Why?

Absolutely! I taught this in my Drama unit to 10th graders. This live performance-like taping was wonderful!

What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Plays are meant to be experienced, not just read. This production brought the text to life.
