Samson's Way

Samson's Way plunges into a harrowing world of inner-city violence. As the curtain rises, it's been a year since teenager Samson Willis was killed, believed to have been an innocent bystander to an outbreak of gang violence. In that time, nobody's stepped forward to help find the killer—not the indifferent police, and not the neighbors, who are afraid of provoking retaliation. As Samson's mother, Sasha, keeps investigating despite the odds, shocking secrets emerge and hairpin plot twists keeps audiences guessing, requiring the theater to supply extra padding for the edges of its seats. Playwright Fulton C. Hodges created the piece partly to make the issues surrounding gun violence vivd to teenagers, and despite its dark themes, Samson's Way is designed to be a family-friendly production.
