Charleston Stage Founder and Producing Artistic Director Julian Wiles’s original play The Seat of Justice, which played to sold-out houses last February, will be published later this year by Dramatic Publishing. The Seat of Justice and Wiles’s other eight original plays are now available to other theatres around the country for production. These include: Nevermore, Blitzen, a boy and his piano, Fruitcakes, Helium, Inga Binga and Night of the Pteradactyls.
“I’m especially excited to learn that this amazing and often forgotten story from South Carolina and American history,” say Wiles, “will now be told at other theatres around the country. This is a testament not only to my play but to the courageous citizens of Clarendon County that set in motion the wheels of justice that would lead to the landmark Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court Decision.”
