1944. A black Sergeant is murdered on a Louisiana Army base, and one tenacious investigator must race against his white leadership to unravel the crime before they unravel him. A hair-raising drama that reverberates with the “authentic and exciting pulse” (Ben Brantley, The New York Times) of mystery, Charles Fuller’s Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece rockets onto Broadway for the first time, directed by Tony Award® winner Kenny Leon (A Raisin in the Sun).

Broadway Plays Stars on Stage Drama

Know Before You Go

Though this production marks A Soldier's Play's debut on Broadway, playwright Charles Fuller won the Pulitzer Prize for drama for the work in 1982, making him only the second African-American playwright to win the prestigious award.

"A knock-your-socks-off drama. Breathe slowly and keep your heartbeat steady if you hope to make it through this one without breaking up into little pieces."
