March 24 – April 2, 2017 The Center for the Arts will present A TIME TO KILL based on the bestselling novel by John Grisham. Controversy strikes a Southern community that splits it in two, in John Grisham’s gripping tale A TIME TO KILL. An idealistic, young, white lawyer takes the case of a black father, who took vengeance on the men who committed an atrocious crime against his daughter. Race, crime, family, and small town America are scrutinized in a trial that questions whether a person ever has the right to take justice into their own hands. In 1996, the novel was adapted into a film of the same name, starring Matthew McConaughey and Samuel L. Jackson. In 2011, it was further adapted into a stage play of the same name by Rupert Holmes.
