Fresno State University Theatre Presents: Native Son By Nambi E. Kelley Based on the Novel by Richard Wright Original Stage Adaptation by Paul Green & Richard Wright Directed by Thomas-Whit Ellis October 27 - November 4, 2017 **INTENDED FOR MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY** Chicago. The South Side. The 1930s. A world where opportunity is elusive for people like Bigger Thomas. After landing a job in the home of a wealthy family, Bigger unwittingly unleashes a series of events that violently and irrevocably seal his fate. Using W.E.B. DuBois' theory of double consciousness as a grounding point, this adaptation of 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.
