Will this be another race baiting move or will it bring the truth to the light? The play is based solely on actual grand jury testimony.
Phelim McAleer, who along with Ann Mcelhinney brought us “Not Evil, Just Wrong” and “FrackNation” is the man behind a new and daring production to hit the stage. “Ferguson: The Play” will be a live, stage reenactment of the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson, Missouri, based on actual grand jury testimony and the facts of the case. This means there won’t be any “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” moment. And the extra twist? The audience gets to vote on Darren Wilson’s case, just as the grand jury did.
It’s a truly interactive, innovative way to bring daylight to the events that took place from the time of the shooting, up to the acquittal.
In a press release, McAaleer said:
“I want to bring the truth about what happened that day to the stage. I think audience members will be very surprised, even shocked, when they hear the clear and unaltered truth about the events that took place on Aug. 9, 2014. There are a lot of myths and half-truths circulating about the shooting. FERGUSON is a chance to dispel these once and for all.”
