Journal #4 ‘Master Harold’ ...and the Boys

Complete the following assignment and bring to class on Monday, March 24.  You can also post your response on-line in the "Master Harold" blog.

Since this is only a three character play, you'd think the purpose of each character would be obvious.  However, I find that in this play there is a "third wheel," so to speak.  Ponder on the character of Willie in "Master Harold" ...and the Boys.  What function does he serve within the play?  In what ways does Fugard present him (i.e., techniques) in order to accomplish this function?
