The Scottsboro Boys

UK premiere of Kander and Ebb's provocative musical The Scottsboro Boys directed by five-time Tony Award winner Susan Stroman.

The true story of nine young black men, aged between 12 and 19, travelling on a train through Scottsboro, Alabama, in 1931 in search of a new life.

By the end of their journey, their lives had been changed forever by the devastating effect of a single lie. Two white women falsely accused the nine of rape. Even though one of the women later recanted her accusation, and in spite of a total absence of evidence, the boys were convicted.

Their subsequent trials and appeals, lasting seven years, deeply divided the nation.
