In 1985, in a segregated township in South Africa, an idealistic teacher believes education— and poetry — can create a better future for his students. Amid anti-apartheid rioting, Mr. M hopes to offer reconciliation by forming a debate club between his black school and the local white school. But as neighborhood tensions escalate, students and teacher find themselves along the blurry line between revolution and terrorism. The shocking conclusion is a timely reminder that one person’s tragedy and a community’s deep sense of loss are inextricably linked. …the real power of a history play is to make us realize that then is now and them is us.” –Variety

“I want the audience to listen for the tension these students feel as they seek to be agents of change in their society. For me as an artist, it is about how to balance your art with your beliefs. Then you realize/utilize the power of your passion.”

– James A. Williams, Co-Director
