Marsha Mason returned to the New York stage to play the lead in this story of one woman's journey to redemption by the Pulitzer Prize winning author of The Shadow Box. Selma Goodall is a lonely, middle aged woman trapped in a life that is suffocating her. She tries to escape through prescription drug abuse. Confused by her religious upbringing and haunted by the ghost of sexual abuse, she sinks into despair and finds herself on trial for a series of murders of which she has no recollection. Convicted and sentenced to death, Selma spends her last days in prison where, ironically, she comes finally to an understanding of life, love and herself. The long journey out of the darkness ends in the light.
