The Soldiers Play
by Charles Fuller

August 30 - September 29, 2019.

It's 1944 in a Louisiana army camp. Capt. Taylor, the white C.O., has a problem. He commands a black company whose sergeant has been murdered. He is worried the murderer may be a white officer or the local Klan. A black captain, Richard Davenport, is assigned to investigate, and Taylor tries to discourage him because he feels the assigning of a black investigator means the case will be swept under the rug. As Capt. Davenport probes, he finds the black soldiers are as corrupt with hatred as the whites. The case is solved and the truth is even more shocking than the murder itself.
