Pearl Theater Presents Miss Evers Boys
February 23 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Miss Evers Boys is a fictionalized account of the Tuskegee Study of Untreated Syphilis in the Negro Male that took place in Macon County, Alabama. From 1932 to 1972, hundreds of poor black men suffering from ‘bad blood’ were given mercury and arsenic, a treatment that worked if it didn’t kill the patient, until funding ran out. The diligent Nurse Evers is faced with a difficult decision: to tell the men that they are no longer being treated, or follow the lead of her superiors and the tenets of the nursing profession. This riveting drama explores still-relevant topics such as medical ethics, prejudice, misogyny, classism, black, white and the areas in between.
Tickets: Adults $16, Seniors & Students $14
