Indiana Repertory Theatre

Based on the lynching depicted in the famed Lawrence Beitler photograph, this drama involves the fictional meeting between a witness and a survivor of that terrible moment in Indiana history. After its world premiere here, Charles Smith’s play will be staged at Chicago’s acclaimed Victory Gardens Theatre. From there, who knows? Smith’s plays have been performed around the world (His “Free Man of Color” recently premiered in Australia).

A big potential plus: The IRT cast includes Andre De Shields—an original cast member of Broadway’s “Ain’t Misbehavin’”and the Tony-nominated star of “The Full Monty” and “Play On!” Details here
