From playwright Stephen Belber (Match, Tape, The Laramie Project) comes a provocative new drama that pits social responsibility against personal redemption. When Delaware journalist Rick Dayne meets death row inmate Darius McReele, the articles Rick writes eventually lead to Darius's exoneration from an 18 year old murder conviction. Darius's sympathetic past and magnetic personality make him a darling of the lecture circuit, leading to national attention and political viability. With his past and future in the balance, Darius walks the line, as Rick seeks to determine which way he'll ultimately fall.
