Intiman Theatre's acclaimed American Cycle continues this season with Richard Wright and Paul Green's play Native Son, adapted and directed by Kent Gash. Richard Wright's novel Native Son, published in 1940, is one of the most powerful stories about racism -- and its consequences for both individuals and society -- ever written. When Bigger Thomas accidentally murders the daughter of his white employer in a moment of panic, he sets off a series of tragic events that, 66 years after the novel was published, continue to yield powerful insights and emotions regarding poverty, power, and the state of race relations in America.
