About Native Son
The longing for social justice ignites a palpable rage in Richard Wright’s classic novel, "Native Son." Set in 1930s Chicago, where opportunities for African American men like Bigger Thomas are elusive, playwright Nambi E. Kelley’s gripping adaptation focuses on the inner workings of the protagonist’s mind as events violently and irrevocably seal his fate.
