WORLD PREMIERE! "We laugh so we don't cry." A play that highlights the frustrations in our justice and prison systems with comedy while leading an unsuspecting audience to a gut punch of truth.

17 years ago, Penny was the foreman on the jury of a murder trial that shook the nation. She's lived with the guilt of having put an innocent man on death row by leading the jury to vote guilty based on circumstantial evidence and her infatuation with the manipulative prosecuting attorney. Now she must face her past and fight to right the wrongs that led to the conviction and sentencing of Mr. Shiloh Beck.

Our justice system is all over the place. As is the tone of this play.

Performing in the Broadwater Black Box (Entrance at 6322 Santa Monica Blvd.)

THIS SHOW IS SURROUNDED BY TRUE EVENTS is one of three shows Sacred Fools is proud to present in the 2024 Hollywood Fringe. Please also check out THE PLANET EARTH FAREWELL CONCERT and TYT5.
