About

Adapted for the stage from Richard Wright’s landmark autobiography, this poignant coming-of-age story traces the African-American author’s many boyhood struggles—from growing up poor and being abandoned by his father to facing “Jim Crow” prejudice in early 20th-century America. Through his love of literature and his own personal writings, Wright finds the power to rise above these challenges and make his mark on the world.
