Profile

Ernest Gaines' seminal novel about the Jim Crow South, adapted for the stage by Romulus Linney, revolves around Grant Wiggins, a well-educated black school teacher striving to escape his limited circumstances, and Jefferson, an innocent young black man, accused and convicted of a heinous crime. Their lives intersect when Wiggins is asked to help Jefferson learn how to die "like a man," that is, with dignity, before he's excuted by the state of Louisiana.
