Although they're polar opposites, a pair of condemned inmates make a profound connection from their side-by-side cells in Coyote on a Fence. This drama by playwright Bruce Graham explores the nature of evil and the implications of the death penalty through a provocative piece of entertainment. 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 courtesy of Chula Vista's OnStage Playhouse.
Coyote on a Fence contains strong language and adult situations and is best suited for audience members over the age of 16.
