In 1913 Atlanta, Georgia, a teenage factory employee is raped and murdered. Leo Frank, the Jewish manager of the factory, is charged with the crime. By manipulating witnesses and tampering with evidence, the prosecution convinces the jury that Frank is guilty. His only defenders are a Governor with a conscience and his loving Wife, who finds the courage and strength to become his greatest champion. Considered one of the most sensational trials of the early 20th century, the Frank case disturbingly reflects the world’s current political and social climate amid antisemitism, racial tension and political injustice.
The winner of two Tony Awards for best book and score, and the Drama Desk and New York Critics’ Circle awards for best musical, Parade explores the endurance of love and hope against all odds. With book by acclaimed playwright, Alfred Uhry (Driving Miss Daisy) and a rousing, colourful and haunting score by Jason Robert Brown (Songs For A New World, The Last Five Years, Bridges of Madison County), Parade is a powerful and moving examination of the darkest corners of human history.
