Parade

Parade is the real-life story of Leo Frank, a Brooklyn-born Jewish man who is unfairly tried for the murder of a young girl working in his pencil factory in Georgia in 1913.

Parade explores injustice, prejudice and the struggle for human rights – themes that continue to resonate in contemporary society. Set against the aftermath of the American civil war, Leo’s trial and subsequent lynching tells a remarkable story that speaks to the evils of intolerance and injustice.

Thetheatrenerd: "Steve Hendy's lighting is gorgeous, particularly his use of colour to highlight key moments. Of particular note is the use of beams of light to represent Leo's jail cell. A very clever, subtle touch indeed."
