In the Summer of 2008 it was often said that Philadelphia had “more bodies than days.” The city was in the midst of a murder epidemic that put it on par with some third world countries. Determined to take an unflinching look at the causes of the crime rate and its effect on the community, playwright/performer Sean Christopher Lewis introduces us to the inmates of Graterford Prison – men employed to beautify the city even as they serve out life sentences. Men who received their life sentences before they were old enough to drink. A play about the worlds we want to live in and the worlds we really do.
Part of 100 Club Series 2016
Moderated post-show dialogues follow Thursday and Friday performances.
