Award-winning playwright Marcus Gardley's latest play is titled "X." It tells the story of the assassination of Malcolm X, both the story we think we know, and the details seldom shared. Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar" provides the framework for Gardley to deepen our understanding of this complex, compelling figure in the tumultuous era of the 1960s.
