Running in rotating repertory with Measure for Measure, Richard Wright's groundbreaking novel of oppression, freedom and justice comes to life onstage in this timely adaptation. In the South Side Chicago of the 1930s, Bigger Thomas struggles to create a place for himself in a world whose prejudice has left him with few opportunities. After taking a job in a wealthy white man's house, he unwittingly unleashes a series of events that violently and irrevocably seal his fate. Running Time: 90 minutes without an intermission Recommended for ages 12 and up.
