Set in Chicago’s South Side during the 1930’s, the play follows 20-year-old Bigger Thomas struggling to realize his dreams in a world that has shut him out. After taking a job in a wealthy white man’s house, Bigger unwittingly unleashes a series of events that violently and irrevocably seal his fate. Adapted with theatrical ingenuity by Chicago’s own Nambi E. Kelley, this Native Son captures the power of Richard Wright’s novel for a whole new generation. By Nambi E. Kelley
Based on the novel by Richard Wright
Directed by Lifeline Theatre’s Artistic Director Ilesa Duncan
