WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
A Lesson Before Dying, written by Romulus Linney and directed by Kathy Gnazzo, is a bold and moving statement about the link between learning and dignity. Jefferson, a young man on death row, and his teacher, Grant Wiggins, meet in this gripping, heartbreaking, and timely piece that explores the deep polarities of racism and compassion.
