Set in a South African school for boys in 1970, The Film Society chronicles the struggle of a young teacher to keep politics out of his extracurricular film club. After the school becomes embroiled in an Apartheid controversy, he must decide whether to support his activist colleague or side with the headmaster who can make or break his career.

An early play from the acclaimed author of Other Desert Cities, this is a powerful and witty tale of one man’s responsibility in the face of historical change.

"What distinguishes Mr. Baitz' writing is its ability to embrace the ambiguities of political and moral dilemmas that might easily be reduced to blacks and whites.”— The New York Times.
