A searing new adaptation of a contemporary classic about being black in America.
April 18 – 28, 2019
By Nambi E. Kelley
Based on the Novel by Richard Wright
Directed by Andi Chapman
The longing for social justice ignites a palpable rage in Richard Wright’s classic novel, Native Son. Set in 1930s Chicago, where opportunities for African American men like Bigger Thomas are elusive, playwright Nambi E. Kelley’s gripping adaptation focuses on the inner workings of the protagonist’s mind as events violently and irrevocably seal his fate.
