Murder in the First

by

Prisons are rarely lauded for their kindness, clemency, and fine conditions and Alcatraz certainly wasn’t a model of the form. Dan Gordon’s play, based on his documentary, draws on a law case that helped to reveal the appalling conditions at the prison. Chad Kimball plays an inmate; Guy Burnet the attorney assigned to him.

Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Saturdays, 2 p.m.; Sundays, 3 p.m.; Tuesdays-Thursdays, Sundays, 7 p.m. Starts: May 25. Continues through July 1, 2012
