LCT3 presents the world premiere of an LCT3 commission, WHEN I COME TO DIE, a new play by Nathan Louis Jackson, directed by Thomas Kail.

WHEN I COME TO DIE tells the story of Damon Robinson, a death-row inmate played by Chris Chalk (Fences), who struggles to find faith and hope and understand why his life has been spared after he survives a lethal injection.

This new play re-unites author Nathan Louis Jackson and director Thomas Kail, who brought Broke-ology to LCT in Fall 2009. Nathan Louis Jackson is a two-time Lorraine Hansberry Playwriting Award winner. His television writing credits include "Shameless", "Southland" and "Lights Out". Thomas Kail received a Tony nomination for directing In The Heights and most recently, directed the current Broadway production of Lombardi, a new play by Eric Simonson.

LCT3 is Lincoln Center Theater's programming initiative devoted to producing the work of new artists and building new audiences.
