Griping story and acting from a surprisingly very mature cast of college students... Not a bad seat in the house.

Description

This extraordinary second play by James Baldwin is dedicated to the memory of murdered civil rights activist Medgar Evers, his widow and his children, and to the memory of the dead children of Birmingham. Its 1964 premiere was praised in The New York Times for its “…fierce energy and passion … like a thunderous battle cry.” Known primarily for his brilliant work as a novelist, poet, essayist and civil rights activist, James Baldwin has written a play of great moral force that dramatizes the compromises of conscience.
