X: Or, Betty Shabazz v. The Nation (OffBroadway, Theatre at St. Clement's, 2018) | Playbill

X: Or, Betty Shabazz v. The Nation


SYNOPSIS: The assassination of Malcolm X—both the story we think we know and illuminating details that have seldom been shared—is brought to vivid, lyrical life in award-winning writer Marcus Gardley’s new play. Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar provides a framework for Gardley to deepen our understanding of one of America’s most complex, compelling historical figures and explore the tumultuous landscape of ideology and activism in the 1960s.
