A black sergeant cries out in the night, "They still hate you," then is shot twice and falls dead. Set in 1944 at Fort Neal, a segregated army camp in Louisiana, Charles Fuller's forceful drama--which won the Pulitzer Prize in 1982 and has been regularly seen in both its original stage and its later screen version--tracks the investigation of this murder. A Soldier's Play is more than a detective story: it is a tough, incisive exploration of racial tensions and ambiguities among blacks and between blacks and whites that gives no easy answers and assigns no simple blame.

Charles Fuller, the second black playwright to receive the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1939 and educated at Villanova University and La Salle College. Fuller's plays, many of which explore relationships between blacks and whites, include First Love, Sparrow in Flight, and We. His play, Zooman and the Sign, received the Obie Award from Village Voice and the Audelco Award for best writing, but it was A Soldier's Play that won Fuller his Pulitzer. The play is set on an army base in the South during World War II, and follows a black officer's investigation of a murder. The play was adapted into the film, A Soldier's Story. Charles Fuller co-founded the Afro-American Arts Theatre in Philadelphia. He has also been a professor of African-American studies at Temple University.
