A Soldier's Play - Philadelphia PA Summary

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. “This is a play that deserves to be staged regularly all over America—though it’s hard to imagine that it will ever be done better than this. It keeps you guessing all the way to the final curtain” (The Wall Street Journal).

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. Broadway’s Norm Lewis leads a powerhouse cast in the show Variety calls “a knock-your-socks-off-drama," directed by two-time Tony winner Kenny Leon.

“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." –Marilyn Stasio, Variety

“A highly entertaining, strikingly taut drama that you don’t want to end. A Soldier’s Play is powerful as ever after nearly 40 years.” –Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune

“A potent masterpiece. Fuller’s well-told murder mystery remains a bracing slap of a drama, a thoughtful examination of American bigotry and the many tolls it exacts.” –Greg Evans, Deadline

“Blistering and relevant, A Soldier’s Play still scalds.” –David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter

“A Soldier’s Play is a powerful story that seems to live eternally.” –Trevor Noah, The Daily Show

“An explosive drama, it tells an enduring and urgent story, reverberating with a timeless message.” –Joe Dziemianowicz, Theater News Online
