Second Stage Theatre presents the world premiere production of Whorl Inside a Loop, a new play by Dick Scanlan and Sherie Rene Scott, co-directed by Michael Mayer and Mr. Scanlan, the creative team behind the Tony-nominated, critically acclaimed hit, Everyday Rapture, which had its world premiere at Second Stage Theatre in 2009.

WHORL INSIDE A LOOP began performances on August 4 and officially opened last night, August 27, 2015 at Second StageTheatre's Tony Kiser Theatre (305 West 43rd street).

Sherie Rene Scott is joined by Derrick Baskin (...Spelling Bee), Nicholas Christopher (Motown),Chris Myers (An Octoroon), Ryan Quinn (King Lear), Daniel J. Watts (In the Heights), and Donald Webber, Jr. (Motown).

A well-regarded actress agrees to teach six inmates how to tell their stories behind the bars of a men's maximum security prison. Sharing intimate and sometimes hilarious details of their former lives, this unlikely group forms a bond -- even as the actress' life outside spins out of control. And when what happens in prison doesn't stay there, no one is sure who to trust.

From the team that brought you Everyday Rapture, this new play features Sherie Rene Scott and six men playing two dozen characters in a constant shifting of scenes, ages, genders and races. Whorl Inside a Loop explores the fine line between convicted felons and the criminal inside each of us, the viability of forgiveness and the unreliability of redemption.
