That Summer in Sumner by Ifa Bayeza
Directed by Talvin Wilks
Drawn from courtroom transcripts, news accounts, and government records, That Summer in Sumner simulates the 1955 trial for the murder of Emmett Till with palpable energy and profound theatricality. Told from the perspective of three African-American journalists covering the event, this world premiere play takes audiences on a journey from 1955 to today and calls upon us to reimagine our tomorrow, together.
