When justice locks you up, what sets you free? Gripping from start to finish, two notorious men await trial for murder, only to discover justice and goodness where it is least expected. Pulitzer Prize-winner Stephen Adly Guirgis delivers an uncompromising drama about contradiction, contrition, and hypocrisy.

Approximate running time: 2 hours and 15 minutes, including one 20-minute intermission.

Note: The play deals with mature themes and contains the use of graphic language and distressing imagery. Please contact the Box Office if you have any questions. This production uses herbal cigarettes.
