Co-presented with Norfolk State University Theatre Company
From the award-winning, nationally recognized Norfolk State University Theatre Company comes this riveting new production of Charles Fuller’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play, a murder mystery set in a Louisiana Army base that lays bare the raw emotions of racism. The original New York production by the Negro Ensemble Company launched the careers of Denzel Washington and Samuel L Jackson and was followed by a film version (renamed A Soldier’s Story) starring many of the same actors.
