A black sergeant cries out in the night, "They still hate you," then is shot twice and falls dead. Set in 1944 at Fort Neal, a segregated army camp in Louisiana, Charles Fuller's forceful drama--which won the Pulitzer Prize in 1982 and has been regularly seen in both its original stage and its later screen version--tracks the investigation of this murder.A Soldier's Playis more than a detective story: it is a tough, incisive exploration of racial tensions and ambiguities among blacks and between blacks and whites that gives no easy answers and assigns no simple blame.

He won the Pulitzer Prize forA Soldier's Play, as well as an Academy Award nomination for his screen adaptation,A Soldier's Story, which starred Denzel Washington.

"A powerful drama . . . Skillfully wrought . . . One of the most evenhanded, penetrating studies that we have yet seen."Edwin Wilson, The Wall Street Journal "A relentless investigation into the complex, sometimes cryptic pathology of hate . . . A mature and accomplished workfrom its inspired opening up of conventional theatrical form to its skillful portraiture of a dozen characters to its remarkable breadth of social and historical vision . . . Mr. Fuller's play tirelessly insists on embracing volatile contradictions because that is the way to arrive at the shattering truth."Frank Rich, The New York Times "A complex and rewarding play [by] a playwright of great sensibility."Clive Barnes,The New York Post "A work of great resonance and integrity."Jack Kroll, Newsweek
