New York Times
'ENGROSSING AND THOROUGHLY ENJOYABLE - KEEPS THE AUDIENCE ON THE EDGE OF ITS SEAT WITH CINEMATIC PACING AND TERRIFIC PERFORMANCES!'
'FIRST-RATE - THE SORT OF JUICY COURTROOM DRAMA WE RARELY GET THESE DAYS!
'AN INTENSELY EXCITING THEATRICAL EXPERIENCE, WITH ALL THE HEATED DRAMA - AND MELODRAMA - OF AN IRRESISTIBLE JOHN GRISHAM NOVEL!'
'COMPELLING - A WORTHY SPECIMEN OF THE SOCIALLY CONSCIOUS COURTROOM DRAMA!'
From the company that brought you Poetic License comes Murder in the First, inspired by a compelling true story of the trial that ultimately led to the closing of Alcatraz - the most notorious correctional institution in U.S. history.
A powerful courtroom drama, this gripping play centers around the bond that develops between the young attorney in the Public Defendant's office, Henry Davidson and Willie Moore, the prisoner whom he defends and ultimately befriends.
The running time of MURDER IN THE FIRST is 2 hours 15 minutes, including one intermission.
