Retrograde Tickets

    Ryan Calais Cameron, the writer of the award-winning show For Black Boys presents his latest explosive play, Retrograde, a thought-provoking exploration of identity, resilience, and integrity. Don't miss the chance to witness this powerful production, running for only 6 weeks at Kiln Theatre!

    Why Watch Retrograde

    The Golden Age of Hollywood was known for many milestones but was also the worst era in history when it came to the oppression of minorities. The 28-year-old Sidney Poitier in this true story is simply a regular guy with big plans: he wants to make his first feature film. He became well-known to the public much before the Oscar-winning activist king. Behind closed doors, a proposition is made to him that may make all his dreams come true, but at what cost? Can Sidney keep his integrity in the face of Hollywood pressures? Retrograde is written by Ryan Calais Cameron, and directed by Amit Sharma, Associate Director at Kiln. This touching production delves into a pivotal moment in the career of an industry icon, one that paved the way for newcomers, shifted public perception, and established the star's long reputation. With a limited run schedule of just 6 weeks, now is the time to get your Retrograde tickets at the Kiln Theatre!
