The Acting Company has extended its run of Marcus Gardley's X: or, Betty Shabazz v. the Nation through February 25 at the Theatre at St. Clement's.

Ian Belknap directs this look at the assassination of Malcolm X, which deepens our understanding of one of America's most complex, compelling historical figures, and explores the tumultuous landscape of ideology and activism in the 1960s.

Ruff plays Betty Shabazz, with a cast that also includes Jimonn Cole as Malcolm X, Harriet D. Foy, Kevis Hillocks, Cedric Mays, J.D. Mollison, Austin Purnell, Joshua David Robinson, William Sturdivant, and Tatiana Wechsler.
