Four women are denied the jobs for which they've been trained simply because of the color of their skin. Their fight to win what was promised to them by the U.S. Army takes them on a journey that goes through a court martial for treason and all the way to the White House.
Court-Martial at Fort Devens is the winner of 5 Audelco Awards including best playwright Jeffrey Sweet.
I am filled with gratitude for the many amazing collaborations with artists, audiences, and supporters I have enjoyed for the past 10 years. The impact of Beacon’s work was realized in diverse communities through the input and creativity of many committed individuals and partnering organizations.
