The community of a backwoods Southern town grapples with the murder of a Black man who is found hanging in a tree. As events unfold, the hanging mystifies the people of the community, forcing them to confront their complicity in this man's horrific demise. Stacy Osei-Kuffour's darkly comical, heartbreaking play -- which recently made the prestigious 2017 Kilroy's List -- uses absurdity to explore racism, sexuality and the parts of American history we would all like to forget. Watch Hang Man put together the pieces of a tragedy at Chicago's Gift Theatre.
