    Admission is Free and Open to the Public
    (New Orleans) – As part of the American Theatre Project, Dillard University and The Standard New Orleans will present a staged reading of the 1982 Pulitzer-Prize Winning drama by Charles Fuller, “A Soldier’s Play.” The reading will take place simultaneously in 27 theaters in 12 states and 17 cities throughout the country and in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. The show begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Georges Auditorium in the Professional Schools and Sciences Building on Dillard’s campus.
    The play is a murder mystery that takes place on an army base in Louisiana in 1944 during the time of segregation in the military.  When Sergeant Vernon Waters, a black army officer is killed, Captain Richard Davenport, who is also black, is sent to conduct the investigation. It explores not only the white racist attitudes of the time, but how blacks themselves harbored some of those same emotions and resentment towards other African Americans.
    This is third annual Project 1Voice Play Day which celebrates African American Theater.   
    “As one of the oldest African American University theaters in the country, Dillard is excited to once again host this Project1Voice production in partnership with the American Theater Project,” said Cortheal Clark, chair of Dillard’s theater department.  “We are also pleased to have such stellar individuals as Director Nicoye Banks, actor and native New Orleanian and Producer Ed Bishop, founding producing artistic director of the American Theater Project in Wash., D.C., involved in this project,” Clark added.
    Admission is free and open to the public. For more information on Project 1Voice and “A Soldier’s Play,” please see links below.
