A reading of the play written and directed by Patricia Milton
Artist in Residence Patricia Milton will direct the reading of her recently completed first draft of "Without Mercy”; a full-length play that examines the issues surrounding the death penalty in the U.S. and witnesses the effects of a woman’s murder on her surviving family members. Are some acts unforgivable? Is the death penalty justice, retribution, or a combination of these? How can victims – and society – best obtain peace after a violent act?
