About this show

In the South Side of Chicago of the 1930s, Bigger Thomas takes a job in a wealthy white man's house, violently and irrevocably sealing his fate.

Playing in rotating repertory with Measure for Measure.

"A fluid, vigorous adaptation of the novel. Galen Ryan Kane is forceful!" — New York Times

"As profound as it is disturbing, Nambi E. Kelley's adaptation leaves no daylight between Bigger Thomas and the society that shapes him." — Los Angeles Times
