WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
It's 1930 in Indiana and five young people are eager to break out of their small town. They need a car. They have a gun. But years later, contradictory memories are all that's left of their grand plans. The Gospel According to James is based on the double lynching immortalized by the iconic Lawrence Beitler photograph. The play creates a fictional meeting between the man who survived the lynching and the only woman with them that night. As The Gospel According to James dramatizes the events leading up to the crime, it also explores how unreliable personal memory underlies what we believe to be an immutable public history. The play features two-time Tony nominated actor Andre De Shields.
