It’s a kind of homecoming this week for two old friends and collaborators as they reunite for a production of Athol Fugard’s celebrated play, “Master Harold … and the Boys.”  Taking the role of a black servant who has become a surrogate father to a neglected white schoolboy in apartheid-era South Africa,  longtime local actor G. Valmont Thomas  is back on the Seattle boards. He’s spent more than a decade performing in Ashland,  as a company member of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival,  before returning to Seattle.  The show’s director is M. Burke Walker, former artistic director of  Empty Space Theatre and University of Washington drama professor,  who lives in New York City. “Master Harold” opens Thursday at West of Lenin in Fremont, and runs through April 21.
