The Scottsboro Boys
The play is based on a true story of the 1930s. The show depicts the story of nine young African American boys who are eager to see more of the world and want to achieve something.. They board a train from their hometown and set out on a journey, without any hint of what lies ahead. The story is full of twists and surprises. On the train there are two girls, who have run away from their home. Keen to rid themselves of the blame of running away, the girls get off the train and blame the boys for rape. The boys are instantly arrested and face charges of rape. Lacking the means to hire a good lawyer, the trial they face does not turn out in their favor. The court finds the boys guilty and sentences them to death. The boys are put on death row at Kilby Prison and await their execution.
Just before the executions, the sentence of the court is challenged and it is determined that the boys did not have proper representation so they deserve another shot. A new lawyer from New York is appointed for them and things seem to turn in their favor when one of the girls admits that the boys were falsely blamed. The young defendants gain hope and start making plans regarding what they would do once the trial is over. However, much to their chagrin the verdict once again comes out against them. From there a series of appeals and re-trials ensue. In every new trial the boys are found guilty.
