Based on John Ball's novel which inspired the Oscar-winning film and the Emmy-winning television series, In the Heat of the Night pits a visiting black detective from California against a small Alabama town simmering with anger over desegregation. A fitting reflection of America in the 1960s, this Off-Broadway hit is provocative, timely, and uncomfortably relevant.

I thought they did a good job with the story. The journalist's talk at the end put everything in historical perspective and was one of the highlights. Now I have to read his book!
Yes I would recommend this because of the great performance and acting. Prefer if there weren't any laughter incorporated within the adaption. But I was expecting that Audiobooks would have an actual audio reading of this book.
I would recommend this adaption after they have read the actual book.
Yes I would
To any readers who are looking for an audiobook for this book this is not one. This seems like a play that was recorded and edited.... Good to listen after the book's been read.
