The Trial of Trayvon Martin

The killing of Trayvon Martin gave rise to the Black Lives Matter movement

This Speculative Drama in Two Acts examines what might have happened if the OTHER GUY had died that night

The February 2012 shooting death of teenager Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida, and the acquittal of shooter George Zimmerman remain controversial

A fatal confrontation between two leaves a single person to explain what happened

This stage play — using information from the much publicized case — is a wholly fictitious exploration of what might have happened if Martin had been the one to tell the tale

All the characters in this play are fictitious, even those who share names with the living and the dead

The Trial of Trayvon Martin
was first performed April 6, 2017 in Buffalo, New York, at the Manny Fried Playhouse by the Subversive Theatre Collective.
