His mother, Marrie Potgieter , an Afrikaner , operated first a general store and then a lodging house; his father, Harold Fugard, was a disabled former jazz pianist of Irish, English and French Huguenot descent. The couple have since divorced. Their daughter, Lisa Fugard , is also a novelist. Early period[ edit ] In , Fugard organised "a multiracial theatre for which he wrote, directed, and acted", writing and producing several plays for it, including No-Good Friday and Nongogo , in which he and his colleague black South African actor Zakes Mokae performed.

They all got together, albeit at different intervals, and decided to do something about their lives using the stage. In they met Athol Fugard, a white man who grew up in Port Elizabeth and who recently returned from Johannesburg, and asked him if he could work with them "as he had the know-how theatrically—the tricks, how to use the stage, movements, everything"; they worked with Athol Fugard since then, "and that is how the Serpent Players got together.

In an interview in California , Ntshona and Kani were asked why they were doing the play Sizwe Banzi is Dead , which was considered a highly political and telling story of the South African political landscape at the time.

Ntshona answered: "We are just a group of artists who love theatre. And we have every right to open the doors to anyone who wants to take a look at our play and our work. We believe that art is life and conversely, life is art. And no sensible man can divorce one from the other. Other attributes are merely labels. Based on an incident at one of the many political trials involving the Serpent Players, The Coat dramatized the choices facing a woman whose husband, convicted of anti-apartheid political activity, left her only a coat and instructions to use it.

When the group had turned to improvisation, they came up with classic works such as Sizwe Banzi is Dead and The Island , emerging as inner experiences of the actors who are also the co-authors of the plays.

The authorities considered the title of The Island, which alludes to Robben Island , the prison where Nelson Mandela was being held, too controversial, so Fugard and the Serpent Players used the alternative title The Hodoshe Span Hodoshe meaning "carrion fly" in Xhosa.

Harold…and the Boys The passion in his works stems from a deep sense of justice and a feeling of personal moral responsibility to give voice to the weak and voiceless — in turn giving his plays universal meaning. In April this year, his latest play The Shadow of the Hummingbird premiered in America, with Fugard appearing on stage in an acting role for the first time in 15 years. Fugard is the first artist from the African continent to receive the Praemium Imperiale. Read more He is also known as being a voracious opponent of the apartheid regime, but the essential value of his many works is that he is driven by a deep sense of justice and feeling of personal moral responsibility to tell the stories of the "nameless people," to express their emotions and to give them a voice. Fugard was born to an English-speaking father and an Afrikaner mother in Middelburg, a small town in the heart of South Africa, moving later as a young boy to the more cosmopolitan Port Elizabeth.
