OBIE AWARD NOMINATION
Written by Bruce Graham
Directed by Lou Jacob
Two murderers share space on death row. The friendship that unfolds between them reveals a complicated and powerful look at justice, tolerance, the media and personal truth.
Once again Graham explores the complexities of our legal system. Coyote on a Fence provocatively explores the relationship of two men on death row. One inmate has come to terms with conviction; while the other prisoner fights his verdict by interviewing with The New York Times, and editing an anti-death penalty inner-prison newspaper.
The death penalty is one of the most hotly debated issues of our time. In this new millennium, Graham does not make a case for either side, but rather raises the intellectual and emotional questions concerning this complicated issue.
Coyote on a Fence is a perfect fit with our mission statement of producing plays by authors from multi-ethnic backgrounds which deal with controversial issues that reach the whole of our society.
