Pay What You Can Theater Event

Greater Philadelphia Cares cordially invites you to join us for a “Pay What You Can” Night at The Wilma Theater at 7:30 pm on Tuesday, December 5, 2006. We will be hosting a special viewing of My Children! My Africa! by Athol Fugard, directed by Blanka Zizka.

Athol Fugard, praised by The New Yorker as “a primary candidate for either the Nobel Prize in Literature or the Nobel Peace Prize,” confronts the tragedy of apartheid in his native land of South Africa in this compelling and hopeful tale. A humble teacher in a segregated township is determined to match his most gifted student with an enthusiastic white schoolgirl in an English literature competition. As the drilling for the competition advances and political unrest worsens, friendships become colored by impassioned debates, and the three characters struggle to find resolution to South Africa’s racial and social divides.

Suggested donation is $15 per ticket and all proceeds from the performance will benefit the programs of Greater Philadelphia Cares. Please call Greater Philadelphia Cares at 215-564-4544 to make reservations.
