“Breathe slowly and keep your heartbeat steady…,” A Soldier’s Play is a “knock-your-socks-off drama with intense emotional passion and intellectual courage,” says Variety.

In 1944, on a Louisiana Army base, two shots ring out. A Black sergeant is murdered. And a series of interrogations triggers a gripping barrage of questions about sacrifice, service, and identity in America.

A Soldier’s Play, the 1982 Pulitzer Prize-winning thriller by Charles Fuller, has rocketed back into the spotlight, thanks to this 2020 Tony Award®-winning Best Revival from Roundabout Theatre Company. Broadway’s Norm Lewis leads a powerhouse cast in the show The Chicago Tribune calls “a highly entertaining, strikingly taut drama that you don’t want to end,” directed by Tony winner Kenny Leon.

Broadway @ the Ordway presents A Soldier’s Play at Saint Paul’s own Fitzgerald Theater.
