A SACRED THING by Laurence Power.
Southern justice is torn to shreds during the jury deliberations in a race trial set to make history. Based on a true event. A young African-American boy is murdered at the hand of the town Sheriff. The charge? Manslaughter. The play follows the jury's deliberations on a hot Tennessee day, as they try to decide to go with justice, and convict or tradition and acquit. The play is based around the true story of James Stephenson, a 2nd World War Veteran, who was lynched over a broken radio. Each of the 12 Jury members has their own motivations for this case, as the play progresses, and the day grows hotter, their stories unfold.
