Chicago Dramatists to Present SOUTHBRIDGE, Beginning 1/24

A white woman has been brutally killed and an angry mob is at the jailhouse door demanding the sheriff lynch the accused murderer.

The only way to untangle the truth is for the accused, a young black man called "Stranger," to relive the events that lead him to the hangman's tree in Athens, Ohio, in the year 1881. Inspired by a true story, “Southbridge” is both a spiritual journey and a murder mystery. The play was a 2009 National Runner-Up for the Lorraine Hansberry and Rosa Parks Playwriting Award at the Kennedy Center, and the 2010 winner of the Southern Playwrights Competition. “Southbridge” is part of Edmund’s nine-play series titled The City of the Bayou Collection. “Southbridge” is sponsored in part by Chicago Public Radio (WBEZ).

Tickets are $32 and student tickets are $15 for all Thursday performances. To purchase tickets or for more information visit www.chicagodramatists.org or call 312-633-0630.

Venue: Chicago Dramatists 1105 West Chicago Avenue, Chicago, IL 60642
