Kander and Ebb's final musical premiered Off-Broadway in 2010. It tells the true story of nine young black men, aged between 12 and 19, who were falsely accused of rape by two white women while travelling on a train through Scottsboro, Alabama in the 1930s. Their subsequent trials and appeals, lasting seven years, deeply divided the nation.
The show is currently booking at the Garrick Theatre until Saturday 21st February 2015.
