1944. A Louisiana Army base. A sergeant is murdered-and the crime, with its masterfully unfolded investigation, triggers a gripping barrage of questions about sacrifice, service, and identity in America. A hair- raising drama that reverberates with the "authentic and exciting pulse" of mystery, (Ben Brantley, The New York Times). Charles Fuller's controversial masterpiece rockets onto Broadway for the first time, starring three-time Tony® nominee David Alan Grier and Golden Globe® nominee Blair Underwood and directed by Tony Award winner Kenny Leon (A Raisin in the Sun).
