LA Theater Works: In the Heat of the Night

LA Theater Works: In the Heat of the Night

Presented by Park City Institute at George S. & Dolores Dore Eccles Center for the Performing Arts

The first-rate cast of L.A. Theatre Works returns to Park City’s Eccles Center stage with a riveting thriller. Based on John Ball’s 1965 novel (which two years later became a ground-breaking, Academy award-winning film starring Sidney Poitier), “In the Heat of the Night” is a stage performance that is at once relevant and, in the words of a DC Metro reviewer, “searing, disturbing and flat-out brilliant.” Tickets are available by calling 435-655-3114 or online at EcclesCenter.org.

Adapted to the stage by Matt Pelfrey, In the Heat of the Night features a small town Alabama cop forced to confront his bigotry when a well-educated, African American police detective arrives from California to investigate a murder. It is 1965, the era of Martin Luther King Jr., the Kennedys, LBJ, sit-ins, violence, peaceful resistance… and an America moving toward racial equality. The stage is set with 8 microphones, but those radio-play props give way to emotion and complex theater that instantly captivates the audience.
