Don't miss the last three performances of A Soldier's Play!

A Soldier's Play, by Charles Fuller, directed by Nada Vaughn, continues this weekend! Don't miss this suspenseful and thought-provoking exploration of duty, honor, and racial politics in the 1940s U.S. Army. 

This 1981 play (winner of the 1982 Pulitzer Prize for Drama) uses a murder mystery in a 1944 Louisiana army camp to explore the complicated feelings of anger and resentment that some African Americans have toward one another, and the ways in which many black Americans have absorbed white racist attitudes. A black sergeant has been killed. Was it the local Klan, or a white officer? When a rare black captain is assigned to investigate, he finds the black soldiers are as corrupted with hatred as the whites. Each one had a motive for the killing. The investigator solves the case and the truth is even more shocking than the murder itself.

A Soldier's Play will receive its Broadway premiere in January 2020. See it here first!
