In the Heat of the Night

In 1965, a gripping crime thriller featured a Southern white sheriff and an African American detective as unwilling partners in a high-profile homicide. The story captured the complexity of a country grappling with integration and an evolving acceptance of the civil rights movement. With this compelling hybrid of radio theatre and traditional live theatre—complete with props, sound effects, and costumed actors behind mics—L.A. Theatre Works brings the era to life in its adaptation of this groundbreaking novel.
