In the Heat of the Night

The 1967 film version of John Ball’s novel In the Heat of the Night is a cultural touchstone for many, a story dealing with racial tension in the contemporary South.

Pittsburgh Playwrights Theatre Co. stages the story of a black California cop investigating a brutal murder in small-town Alabama in 1962. Monteze Freeland directs a cast led by Kevin H. Moore as detective Virgil Tibbs. -Bill O'Drsicoll
