This performance was beyond my expectations. The acting by these performers was so engaging and emotionally moving that I could not speak when it was over. They became their characters. You felt like you were in the same room with the story.
This story about a young man in South Africa and these two black men who work for his family, challenges your present day beliefs about racism while enlightening your knowledge about race relations in South Africa before Apartheid ended. It also brings out the challenges that any parent-child relationship may have, even when it may not be your child, but one you love and hate at the same time. The love shown by Sam ( Johnny Lee Davemport) towards Hally (Peter Mark Kendall) is so powerful that when it is challenged by hatred, you want the Play to stop, only to be brought back by the unconditional love of Sam towards Hally, as he tries to help him on his journey to becoming a man.
Johnny Lee Davenport and this small ensemble cast are some of the finest actors I have ever seen. Do not miss this play!!
