A Soldier’s Play is a drama by Charles Fuller. The play uses a murder mystery to explore the complicated feelings of anger and resentment that some African Americans have toward one another, and the ways in which many black Americans have absorbed white racist attitudes.
This play is loosely based on Herman Melville’s novella Billy Budd.
