X: OR BETTY SHABAZZ v. THE NATION
WRITTEN BY
Marcus Gardley

PLEASE NOTE:  The originally-scheduled performance of Julius Caesar has been replaced by "X"

As part of its National Tour, The Acting Company will perform X, the newly-commissioned work by the award-winning playwright, Marcus Gardley about the assassination of Malcolm X

The assassination of Malcolm X--both the story we think we know and illuminating details that have seldom been shared--is brought to vivid, lyrical life in award-winning writer Marcus Gardley's new play. Shakespeare's Julius Caesar provides a framework for Gardley to deepen our understanding of one of America's most complex, compelling historical figures and explore the tumultuous landscape of ideology and activism in the 1960s.

Tackling essential questions about the balance of ambition, personal loyalty, and love of country, Shakespeare's timeless political masterpiece has never been more relevant. The story of Malcolm X parallels the story of Julius Caesar, a rising political star torn down by his most trusted allies, audiences witness the art of persuasion, the ugliness of backroom politics, and the historical patterns we can't stop repeating.
