A black sergeant cries out in the night, “They still hate you,” then is shot twice and falls dead. Set in 1944 at Fort Neal, a segregated army camp in Louisiana, Charles Fuller’s forceful drama – which won the Pulitzer Prize in 1982 – tracks the investigation of this murder. “A Soldier’s Play” is more than a detective story: it is a tough, incisive exploration of racial tensions and ambiguities among blacks, and between blacks and whites that gives no easy answers, and assigns no simple blame.
