The Champion takes place in 1962, with Nina and her band holed up from a snowstorm in a small-town diner somewhere in North Carolina. As tempers flare and secrets surface, it seems the waitress at this small-town diner may soon bear witness to life-changing events. Suddenly, the door swings open, and the famous outsiders discover they’re truly in unfriendly territory. This sharply drawn, exciting new play intimately captures a cultural icon and the turbulent era during which she rose to fame.
