  • Overview

    Adapted and directed by Elise Thoron for American Place Theatre, this Literature to Life offering is a verbatim adaptation of James Baldwin’s powerful novel of the same name, one which remains disturbingly poignant even sixty years after it was first published. A story of abiding love in the face of injustice, this one-person show honors Baldwin’s eloquent voice which spoke of the struggle of African-Americans and the saving power of brotherhood.
