"Does a lousy upbringing excuse heinous crimes? Is there room for mercy and repentance within the judicial system? And if Americans really knew the inhabitants of death row, would they want to see them die? Worthy questions…a provocative subject and a literate sensibility " —Variety.
Based on a true story. Illiterate but likable, Bobby Reyburn is a funny young guy who loves to do impressions. He's also a member of the Aryan nation, a racist predator convicted of a horrific crime. John Brennan is educated and arrogant, a serious writer who may only be guilty of doing society a favor. As each awaits his fate on death row, one evokes sympathy, the other derision. In vivid scenes, COYOTE ON A FENCE explores the disturbing question: Can one be innocent though proven guilty? This penetrating new drama offers no clear verdict, just utterly compelling theatre.
starring: Courtney DeGennaro, Garrett Funk, Steph Hickling Beckman, and Sean David Robinson

The Shape of Things or The Art of Perspective or Art Imitates Love or The Things We Do For Love.
When Adam Sorenson meets Evelyn Ann Thompson at the local museum where he works, his life takes an unexpected turn. Never having the best success with women, he is flattered when Evelyn shows an interest in him and, at Evelyn's suggestion, begins a regular exercise regimen, adopts healthier eating habits, dresses more stylishly, and takes on a more confident and dominant personality. The Shape of Things focuses on the nature of art and the moral responsibility of artists, paired with themes of intimacy, and the limits placed on what we will and not do for love.
