What You'll Get
Based on the incendiary novel that spawned an Oscar-winning film of the same name, In the Heat of the Night is a detective thriller set during the Civil Rights Movement. Shattered Globe Theatre's riveting adaptation brings this drama to a new audience at Chicago's Theater Wit, channeling the year 1965, when the country was fraught with sit-ins, tear gas, marches and assassinations. When a successful black detective from L.A. gets tangled up in a homicide investigation in Alabama, he learns just how bad race relations in the Deep South still are. The award-winning film version starring Sidney Poitier remains emblematic of our country in the 1960s. Fifty years later the nation continues to fight the plague of prejudice, and the time is right to revisit this powerful story that helped shape an entire generation.
