THE CHAMPION

A World Premiere by Amy Evans

Based on untold true events. It’s 1962 and music legend Nina Simone is holed up in a snowstorm in a greasy spoon somewhere in North Carolina, waiting for the trains to start running. Tempers flare between band members, and as secrets surface, it’s soon clear this small diner in unfriendly territory may well be the place where life-changing decisions are made. Suddenly, the band find themselves accused of a crime they didn’t commit. A sharply drawn, exciting new play that intimately portrays a cultural icon and the turbulent era during which she rose to fame. Directed by Reginald Douglas.
