Description

Full Length Play

Drama

Produced twice to acclaim at New York's 29th Street Rep, this riveting piece is set around the last public execution in the United States, the 1936 hanging of a black man for the rape and murder of an elderly white woman in Kentucky. The mayor, surprisingly for this time and place, is a woman. She was reluctantly thrust into office after her husband's sudden death and now must preside over the execution, even as she takes a stand against hypocrites, including those in her own family.
"A ferocious, fascinating slice of dark American history." - Back Stage

"Nave takes a fictional rather than a straight documentary approach, allowing him ... to emphasize the most disturbing elements of the event, and best of all, to structure the play with fluid movement across time." - Village Voice
