In 1944, on a Louisiana Army base, two shots ring out. A Black sergeant is murdered. And a series of interrogations triggers a gripping barrage of questions about sacrifice, service, and identity in America.
A Soldier’s Play, the 1982 Pulitzer Prize-winning thriller by Charles Fuller, has rocketed back into the spotlight, thanks to this 2020 Tony Award®-winning Best Revival from Roundabout Theatre Company. Broadway’s Norm Lewis leads a powerhouse cast in the show The Chicago Tribune calls “a highly entertaining, strikingly taut drama that you don’t want to end,” directed by Tony winner Kenny Leon.
“Breathe slowly and keep your heartbeat steady…,” A Soldier’s Play is a “knock-your-socks-off drama with intense emotional passion and intellectual courage,” says Variety.
