Charles Winter Wood Theatre (Edmonds Stage)
The Essential Theatre is proud to present The Story written by Tracey Scott Wilson and directed by Marci J. Duncan. An ambitious African-American reporter investigates a murder and finds the BEST story...but at what cost? Inspired by the Janet Cooke journalism scandal of 1981, Wilson explores the elusive nature of truth as boundaries between reality and fiction, morality and ambition, and self-identity and cultural heritage become dangerously blurred.
