CL Critic Kevin C. Madigan Recommends: Charles Fuller’s 1982 play, winner of the Pulitzer Prize, is back in this revival from Roundabout Theatre Company. The director is Kenny Leon, known well to Atlanta audiences for his notable run at the Alliance Theatre. “The recent passing of the giant that is Charles Fuller has only magnified his brilliance… an amazing writer who left us so much with his masterful A Soldier’s Play,” Leon says. “We honor him with this American tour of the Broadway production of this great American classic. Come - laugh, think and reflect.” The drama, set in 1944, concerns the slaying of a Black sergeant on a Louisiana Army base and its aftermath. “This is a play that deserves to be staged regularly all over America - though it’s hard to imagine that it will ever be done better than this,” wrote the Wall Street Journal. “It keeps you guessing all the way to the final curtain.” The Daily Beast called it “a brilliant, fiercely written, searing indictment of cultural and institutional racism.” It’s recommended for audiences aged 13 and up. — KCM
