The Story

Thursday, February 20 @ 7:30 pm

By Tracey Scott Wilson

Presented by Ebony Theatre

Inspired by real-life events, an ambitious newspaper reporter goes against her editor to investigate a murder and finds the best story…but at what cost? Wilson explores the elusive nature of truth as the boundaries between reality and fiction, morality and ambition become dangerously blurred.

It begins with a tragedy: a young, white, married couple makes some wrong turns while driving in a dangerous part of an unnamed city, and the husband is shot to death by a black assailant. The police are investigating, but so is a local newspaper, and the crime story becomes less important than the way the newspaper conducts itself while chasing the story.
