A new play by Marcus Gardley, directed by Ian Belknap about the assassination of Malcolm X—both the story we think we know and illuminating details that have seldom been shared—is brought to vivid, lyrical life in award-winning writer Marcus Gardley’s new play. Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar provides a framework for Gardley to deepen our understanding of one of America’s most complex, compelling historical figures and explore the tumultuous landscape of ideology and activism in the 1960s.

*Tickets to the performances are $25 and $40 when tickets are purchased for both Julius Caesar and X and are available through the Mesa Arts Center Box Office at or by calling 480-644-6500.
