Barter Theatre presents “In the Heat of the Night” running through May 12. This thrilling murder mystery is based on John Ball’s award-winning novel that inspired an Oscar-winning film, which resulted in the Emmy-winning television series.
“In the Heat of the Night” is an action-packed murder mystery that will keep you on your toes. Set in 1962, a murder takes place in Argo, Alabama where racial tensions run high. There are no witnesses to the crime, no clues left behind, and no motives. As the story of this heinous act unfolds, you are taken on a journey that will shake you to your core.
Jasper McGruder has directed all over the world and is returning to Barter Theatre to bring this thriller to life. He has previously performed at Barter Theatre in the fan favorite, “Driving Miss Daisy”, among others. This production stars Amara Aja, joining us from his recent performances in New York for his Barter debut, as well as the beloved Rick McVey from Barter’s resident acting company.
“In the Heat of the Night” is made possible by our sponsors The Barter Theatre Board of Trustees.
