The Ballad of Emmett Till - Part history, part mystery and part ghost story, IfaBayeza's lyrical integration of past, present, fact and legend turns the story of the 1955 murder of 14-year old Emmett Till, whose shocking death helped spark the nascent civil rights movement, into a soaring work of music, poetic language and riveting theatricality. The Fountain Theatre presents the West Coast premiere of this daring new work in celebration of Black History Month.

The Ballad of Emmett Till is written by Ifa Bayeza and directed by Shirley Jo Finney. Featuring Bernard K. Addison, Rico E. Anderson, Lorenz Arnell, Adenrele Ojo, Karen Malina White. Produced by Stephen Sachs and Deborah Lawlor
