Red Herring Productions returns to playwright Athol Fugard for challenging look at race relations

Red Herring Productions Artistic Director Michael Herring called the company's production of Athol Fugard's “My Children! My Africa!” his “megaphone.”

“I am horrified by the cultural shift toward the nationalistic right and social tolerance of bigotry and racism,” Herring said, adding he was moved to “address issues that are central to our cultural and social fabric.”

The play examines a South African community's generational disagreements over the best ways to attempt to end apartheid and the unexpected ways the debate moves from political to personal.
