Beyond Reasonable Doubt: The Troy Davis Project says
RUNS APRIL 8 to MAY 1, 2016
Thursdays – Saturdays @ 8pm
Sundays @ 5pm

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. There will be a discussion following each performance.
