“Native Son” – a new adaptation

SEP 11–29. Wed–Sat at 7:30pm; Sun at 2:00pm.

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…”
–Chicago Tribune
