Playwright Ifa Bayeza has dedicated much of her creative life to bringing the story of Emmett Till to the stage. This fall, Mosaic presents her opus, The Till Trilogy, three plays celebrating the Civil Rights icon. The trilogy includes world premiere That Summer in Sumner, and reunites Bayeza with director Talvin Wilks, who previously directed her plays The Ballad of Emmett Till and Benevolence.
Meet Ifa Bayeza, who recounts first encountering Till in the pages of Jet and her path to creating The Till Trilogy.
See one play, two, or all three. Plays in The Till Trilogy can be seen in any order, or individually as a standalone theater experience.
