“The Meeting” to be performed Thursday

The public performance of “The Meeting,” a nationally-known one-act play written by Jeff Stetson, will be 7 p.m. Thursday at Danville High School Gravely Hall. “The Meeting” is a powerful drama that imagines what would have happened if Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X had a chance to meet and discuss civil rights and their philosophies before they were assassinated, three years apart. The play features Danville City Police Chief Tony Gray as “the bodyguard,” and stars Whit Whitaker as King and Patrick Mitchell as Malcolm X. Kentucky Poet Laureate Frank X Walker will introduce the production and lead a discussion afterward.

Tickets are free but there is a suggested donation of $5 for adults and $2 for students.
