In the Heat of the Night

In the Heat of the Night at Barter Theatre

April 19, 2018


Based on the award-winning book that inspired the Oscar-winning film and Emmy-winning television series, In the Heat of the Night, comes to the Barter Theatre stage.

It’s 1962.  A hot August night lies heavy over the small town of Argo, Alabama. A dead white man is discovered. The local police arrest a black stranger names Virgil Tibbs, but discover their prime suspect is a homicide detective from California. 


As it happens, Tibbs becomes the racially tense community’s only hope in solving a brutal murder that is turning up no witnesses, no motives and no clues. 

This exciting detective murder mystery story is enlarged by its vivid, shocking portrayal of what it meant to be an African American man in the deep south in the 1960’s.

Don’t miss this action-packed production which offers theatre-goers a distinctly new and timely version of In the Heat of the Night.
