The Champion in Dallas

Submit Updates Images | Videos | Cast | Edit

Inspired by untold events in the life of music legend Nina Simone, The Champion is set in 1962 North Carolina where she and her band are held up by a snowstorm in a greasy spoon. As tempers flare and secrets surface, it seems the waitress at this small-town diner will soon be the only witness to a historic meltdown. Suddenly, the door swings open, and the famous outsiders discover they’re truly in unfriendly territory. A sharply drawn, exciting new play by Amy Evans that intimately portrays a cultural icon in the turbulent era during which she rose to fame.

Ages: The Champion is suitable for audiences ages 13 and above.
