The most realistic play I’ve ever watched. At some point, it felt like the directors had unstable, death row inmates posing as actors to narrate their heinous, real-life crimes. Ironically, amidst such horrors, it was funny too!
~ Thalefang Charles
This theatre production is a captivating, narrative monologue of four convicted prisoners with 24 hours from facing the hangman. Their raw, uncensored stories and vivid explanations, paint horrific images of how they carried out acts of murder in cold blood as a result of revenge, anger, and frustration.
