A Soldier’s PlayRoundabout Theatre Company National tour 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 sergeant is murdered. And a series of interrogations triggers a gripping barrage of questions about sacrifice, service, and identity in America. Tony Nominee Norm Lewis leads a powerhouse cast in the show Variety calls “a knock-your-socks-off-drama,” directed by Tony® winner Kenny Leon.
Cast in 1981’s ‘A Soldier’s Play,’ Eugene Lee reenlists for the 2022 tour
The actor plays a pivotal role in the national touring company of the Pulitzer-winning play’s 2020 Broadway revival, now at the Kennedy Center
“Lee, 69, was a cast member in the original 1981 production of “A Soldier’s Play,” produced off-Broadway by the Negro Ensemble Company and directed by Douglas Turner Ward. When the actors sat down on the first day of rehearsal and read through the play — about the investigation into the murder of an all-Black Army unit’s sergeant in 1944 Louisiana — he recalls a hush that washed over the room as the cast processed Fuller’s incisive depiction of identity, military duty and race in America.” –
