This week on L.A. Theatre Works, a gripping North Florida tragedy of racial prejudice. Tune in this Sunday, May 30 from 7-9 p.m. for Ruby McCollum, based on a case that journalists Zora Neale Hurston and William Bradford Huie investigated in 1952.

In a small town in Florida, a reporter risked his life investigating a shocking murder case. Why did a wealthy African-American woman kill her white lover, the town’s beloved doctor, over a bill for his services? An investigative reporter tries to uncover the truth in a town full of secrets.

Ruby McCollum was written by Ron Milner, Steve Albrezzi and William Bradford Huie. Starring O'Neil Compton, Ronny Cox, Loretta Devine, Ella Joyce, Shirley Knight, Jenifer Lewis, James Morrison, Charlie Robinson, Jean Smart and Paul Winfield.
