The Champion by Amy Evans
Regional Premiere

Inspired by untold events in the life of music legend Nina Simone, The Champion is set in 1962 North Carolina where she and her band are held up by a snowstorm in a greasy spoon. As tempers flare and secrets surface, it seems the waitress at this small-town diner will soon be the only witness to a historic meltdown. Suddenly, the door swings open, and the famous outsiders discover they’re truly in unfriendly territory. A sharply drawn, exciting new play by Amy Evans that intimately portrays a cultural icon in the turbulent era during which she rose to fame. Directed by Rebecca McDonald.
