Story

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).

Critics' Reviews

"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."

Review by Marilyn Stasio from Variety

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.
