Directed by Jennifer Uphoff Gray

In 1977 a small-time real estate developer abducted the mortgage broker who foreclosed on his property. Tony Kiritsis held his hostage for three days, venting his frustration on both radio and television before the shocking denoumént that changed the American legal system. The play imagines the interactions between Tony and his captive - one volatile and anti-religious, the other conservative and devout - in the midst of a horrifying situation. Participate in the development of a new play when you attend this staged reading of a winning script from the 2009 Wisconsin Wrights Playwriting contest.
