Stokely: The Unfinished Revolution
Drama, New Work
Runs May 24Jun 16, 2024
Civil rights activist Kwame Ture, born Stokely Carmichael, was a towering icon; a man of immense domestic and international importance; a man who refused to back down, step aside, or remain silent. But he was also just that: a man. Blending the historical and the personal with astonishing grace, STOKELY: THE UNFINISHED REVOLUTION depicts one man’s rise to prominence and the many people who made it possible, posing the question: what does a movement mean to one man, and what does one man mean to a movement?

Named “the most consistently excellent theatre company in America” by The Wall Street Journal, Court Theatre is dedicated to discovering and conveying the power of classic theatre.  Sometimes this means an imaginative re-envisioning of a classic work to uncover immediately relevant messages; sometimes it means expanding the definition of what makes a classic into often overlooked areas, such as the African American canon and musical theatre; and sometimes it means exploring more recent works that are sure to become classics.  Whatever your definition, you haven’t seen classic theatre until you’ve seen it at Court.
