Some things just haven’t changed.
Stray Cat is purring like crazy to be joining forces with Black Theatre Troupe to bring this powerhouse new work to the Valley. Suffocating in rat-infested poverty on the South Side of Chicago in the 1930s, 20-year-old Bigger Thomas struggles to find a place for himself in a world whose prejudice 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 Nambi E. Kelley, Richard Wright's iconic novel about oppression, freedom, and justice bursts to life on stage in this ground-breaking and shattering new adaptation The Chicago Tribune hailed as “…gutsy, powerful, relentless, profoundly disturbing.”
