Details

Blues For Mr Charlie


Written by James Baldwin

Directed by Paulette Randall


“…a play with fires of fury in its belly” New York Times

Overview

Plaguetown. 1955. When a white man is accused of murdering a black man, the town’s simmering prejudices reach melting point. Will the all-white jury convict him? Or is he above the law? Blues For Mr Charlie is a clarion call for change, “a play with fires of fury in its belly” (New York Times) and as resonant today as when it was written.
