When you look in the mirror, what do you see?
On Chicago’s South Side in the 1930s, Bigger Thomas struggles to find a place for himself in a world where systemic oppression and poverty make fear and violence the everyday currency of life.
Most famously adapted by Carolina’s own Paul Green, Richard Wright’s seminal novel is ready to capture the hearts and minds of another generation with Nambi E. Kelley’s heart-stopping and theatrical new adaptation.
“gutsy, powerful, relentless…”
Due to rough language, adult situations, and racially-charged scenarios in pre-Civil Rights Era Chicago, we encourage all patrons to use their own discretion in determining the appropriateness of the material. Please refer to this plot summary of the novel if you have any concerns.
Approximately 2 1/2 hours, including one, 15-minute intermission. (Subject to change.)
