Although they're polar opposites, two condemned inmates make a profound connection from their side-by-side cells in Coyote on a Fence. This drama from playwright Bruce Graham explores the nature of evil and the implications of the death penalty through a provocative piece of entertainment inspired by true events. Prisoner John is an educated man and the editor of The Death Row Advocate. He sees his killing of a known drug dealer as justified -- as does the simple-minded, psychotic Bobby, who committed a racist mass murder. But their unfolding relationship reveals a deeper moral complexity that provokes thought and challenges long-held assumptions. This production of Coyote on a Fence comes to the First Church in Boston courtesy of Hub Theatre Company of Boston. Donations of new and gently loved children's books will be collected at each performance for local charities.
