This gripping detective murder mystery is a vivid portrayal of the black experience in the deep South during the 1960s. This powerful story, brought to our stage by America’s premier radio theater company, begins on a steamy August night in a small Southern town, where the body of a wealthy white man is discovered. Police arrest a black stranger passing through town for the murder, only to learn that he is a respected homicide detective. The detective reluctantly finds himself working with the chief of police to solve the murder, while wrestling with the fear, hatred, and prejudices prevalent at the time. John Ball’s timely novel became an Academy Award-winning film and an Emmy Award-winning television show, as well as a series of subsequent novels. This stunning stage adaptation is written by acclaimed playwright Matt Pelfrey.

Admission Fee: Tickets: $44, $37, $26. Youth Discount: tickets are half price for youth through grade 12.
