Native Son by Nambi E. Kelley


NATIVE SON

BY NAMBI E. KELLEY
BASED ON THE NOVEL BY RICHARD WRIGHT
DIRECTED BY COLETTE ROBERT

WHEN YOU LOOK IN THE MIRROR, WHAT DO YOU SEE?

On Chicago’s South Side in the 1930s, Bigger Thomas struggles to find a place for himself in a world where systemic oppression and poverty make fear and violence the everyday currency of life.

Most famously adapted by Carolina’s own Paul Green, Richard Wright’s seminal novel is ready to capture the hearts and minds of another generation with Nambi E. Kelley’s heart-stopping and theatrical new adaptation.
