Summary Of ' Charlie Wales '

- Charlie Wales is a stand-up guy or at least he is trying to be. He is trying to convince everyone around him, including himself, that he is sober. Personally, I think he is far from sober.

It was not until his friend, Medgar Evers, took him through the back-woods of Mississippi to investigate the 1955 murder of a young Black teen named Emmett Till, and the later death of Evers, that Baldwin decided to write his first play....   [tags: Theatre]
