An Instant Classic Takes the Stage at the Pearl Theatre

Don’t miss Dominion Entertainment’s captivating presentation of Ernest J. Gaines’ celebrated novel, A Lesson Before Dying, taking the stage at the Pearl Theatre. This monumental play tells the story of Jefferson, a twenty-one-year-old uneducated Black field worker wrongfully accused and convicted of the robbery and murder of a white man.

His tragic journey to inner freedom explores the process of how a person facing oppressive and dehumanizing circumstances attempts to gain recognition of their human dignity, acknowledgment of their human rights, and inner freedom. See the story that critics called “enormously moving” and “an instant classic” come to live onstage.
