Ohio State Murders

Through haunting memory and lyrical monologue, Obie-Award winner Adrienne Kennedy “leads us delicately but intrepidly into an American heart of darkness” (CurtainUp). Directed by Tiffany Nichole Greene (Hamilton National Tour).

When Suzanne arrives at Ohio State University in 1949 as one of a handful of Black freshmen, she discovers the “safe haven” of academia offers little sanctuary. Decades later, the accomplished writer returns to her alma mater to speak about her work—and unravels the heartbreaking truth and chilling mystery of her life lived in the shadows.

Ohio State Murders is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc.
