Falcon Theatre
Aug. 5-14
[Newport]

Directed by Piper N. Davis

Cast: Torrie Wiggins* as May, Dathan Hooper* as Charlie, Kyndra Jefferies as Rosa & James Christian Jr. as Tyrone

When May and Charlie joined hundreds of other Americans who went to Mississippi in the summer of 1964 for a massive voter registration drive, they had no idea their lives were about to change forever. As students at Howard University, their campus activism had been met with calls to their parents and threats of expulsion. The stakes in Mississippi were a lot higher. White supremacists, outraged at the challenge to their segregated way of life, responded with violence that left three civil rights workers dead and many wounded. Soon after, President Johnson deployed thousands of American soldiers to fight the Vietnam War. Four decades later, their heroic fight for racial justice and freedom still haunt them as they struggle to make sense of their lives and look for hope in their future.
