Miss Evers Boys

This production played two US venues and was invited for a UK tour.  Birmingham Repertory Montgomery AL, Cincinnati Playhouse,  Barbican Center London, Birmingham Repertory UK.   Director Martin Platt

The story  follows several characters who were subjects of the Tuskeegee Syphilis Experiments conducted by the US Government for 40 years,  from 1932 to 1972.  This story is based on true events, and is all the more terrifying for being real.   I researched and re-created period medical wear and clothing based on research actually done in Tuskeegee, Alabama.
