Native Son

Bigger Thomas dares to want more out of life. Things start looking up when he lands a plum job with the well-to-do Dalton family, but their daughter Mary proves to be as dangerous as she is alluring. A fateful decision sends Bigger down a violent and inescapable path. Misrepresented and underestimated by everyone around him, Bigger has no one to turn to except himself. Using W.E.B. DuBois’ theory of double consciousness as a guiding principle, this fresh 90-minute adaptation of the book Native Son focuses on the landscape inside the mind of Bigger Thomas, bringing the power of Richard Wright’s novel to life for a whole new generation. MTC is proud to bring Ms. Kelley’s heart-stopping, urgent, and expressionistic adaptation of Wright’s groundbreaking novel to the West Coast, following its sold-out World Premiere at Chicago’s Court Theatre in 2014.
