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.

All tickets for “A Soldier’s Play” are $15.00
