Script: "Hymn To The Rising Sun" (1932)
A play written by Paul Green. "A one act play taking on the abusive treatment of prisoners, especially African-Americans, in the North Carolina prison system. The play is notable for Green for its unity of time, place and action: taking place in a continuous scene on a single morning in the convict stockade. The prisoners are terrorized by The Captain, the white Big Daddy on this plantation. A new prisoner, a young white man called Bright Boy, has found his way into this hellhole, tormented by the groans and cries of Runt, a black convict kept all night in a tiny box named Aggie."
