World Premiere

It is 2011. Troy Davis is about to be executed for killing a white police officer, catalyzing worldwide debates about racial justice & capital punishment. Burned-out activist Alison finds purpose in efforts to exonerate Davis, exasperating her corporate lawyer husband. Civil Rights veteran Mary and her grandson Curtis clash on capital punishment in light of a dark trauma in their past.

Commissioned by Synchronicity, this powerful world premiere by Lee Nowell presents a balanced investigation of diverse beliefs about race, justice and the death penalty. The two acts are played in alternating order each night; half of performances begin with Act 1 and half with Act 2.

*Note: the entire show plays every night.*

There will be a discussion following each performance.

Mature subject matter, no one under 13 admitted.
