Rebel Theatrical Management will present a run of Little Rock at the Sheen Center, May 30-September 8. The work is written and directed by Rajendra Ramoon Maharaj.

Little Rock is inspired by the events of the Little Rock Crisis of 1957. It is based on numerous testimonies, interviews, and research conducted over a 13-year period with the African-American students who became known as the Little Rock Nine, as well as other Arkansans, concerning this historic event and its legacy. Cast and creative team will be announced at a later date.

Little Rock received a developmental production as part of the 2011 New Works Festival at TheatreWorks. It went on to receive a production in 2014 at Passage Theatre where it won the 2015 Barrymore Award for Outstanding Ensemble.
