Don’t miss the first-ever stage adaptation of the famous story adapted by Matt Pelfrey and directed by Joe Tantalo for his acclaimed, award-winning Godlight Theatre Company, returning for their sixth season at 59E59 Theaters. It’s 1962. A hot August night lies heavy over the small town of Argo, Alabama. A dead white man is discovered and the local police arrest a black stranger named Virgil Tibbs. The police discover that their prime suspect is in fact a homicide detective from California. As it happens, Tibbs becomes the racially-tense community’s single hope in solving a brutal murder that is turning up no witnesses, no motives and no clues.
