“An engrossing story of deeply rooted injustice…”
-Variety

“Sharp, chilling, the show’s authentic and exciting pulse… shatter like skeets at a shooting range in this anatomy of the murder of a black sergeant at a Louisiana Army base during World War II.
-The New York Times

From the award-winning, nationally recognized Norfolk State University Theatre Department 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. Now see this searing play with the promising young actors of Norfolk State University!
