First staged over 30 years ago, the Pulitzer Prize-winning drama A Soldier’s Play makes its Broadway debut as part of Roundabout Theatre Company’s latest season. Exploring the consequences of black Americans absorbing white supremacist ideals, the play uses a murder mystery set on a World War Two army base to untangle past attitudes and contemporary views.
The cast of A Soldier’s Play stars David Alan Grier (as Sergeant Vernon C. Waters) and Blair Underwood (as Captain Richard Davenport), Nnamdi Asomugha (as Private First Class Melvin Peterson), Jerry O'Connell (as Captain Charles Taylor), McKinley Belcher III (as Private Louis Henson), Rob Demery (as Corporal Bernard Cobb), Jared Grimes (as Private Tony Smalls), Billy Eugene Jones (as Private James Wilkie), Nate Mann (as Lieutenant Byrd), Warner Miller (as Corporal Ellis), J. Alphonse Nicholson (as Private C. J. Memphis), and Lee Aaron Rosen (as Captain Wilcox).
Set on a Louisiana Army base in 1944, audiences learn that a black Sergeant has been murdered. With no initial clues as to the killer’s identity, a white investigator sets out to unravel the case with feelings of anger and resentment brewing in society.
