WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

This World Premiere adaptation of John Ball's In the Heat of the Night is based on the award-winning book that inspired the Oscar-winning film and the Emmy-winning television series. It's 1962. A hot August night lies heavy over the small town of Argo, Alabama. A dead white man is discovered and the local police arrest a black stranger named Virgil Tibbs. The police discover that their prime suspect is in fact a homicide detective from California. As it happens, Tibbs becomes the racially tense community's single hope in solving a brutal murder that is turning up no witnesses, no motives and no clues.
