by Max Garner
Rapid Lemon Productions and the DC Black Theatre Festival present the area premiere of Marvin’s Trial by Max Garner – directed by CJay Philip – for one show only.
Denied the love of his father, Marvin Gaye won it from an adoring public. He left his Washington, DC home, became a legend, and changed the world with his music.
Marvin’s Trial is a uniquely human portrayal of the life and death of the Motown superstar. This new stage fiction spans half a century and two continents – exploring Marvin’s experiences with love, jealousy, abuse, and ambition. It is a rich theatrical portrait of a man who endured struggles – with family, with music, and with fame – and who paid a tragic price for everything that he earned.
