by Marisa R. Carr
December 10-19, 2015
In this original solo work, actor, playwright, and daughter of a cop Marisa Carr weaves together intertwining narratives and inhabits multiple characters as she explores questions about the effects of law enforcement and criminal justice on various communities. On a cold December evening six strangers’ lives intersect around a single act of desperation, with tragic consequences.
