Michael Dice Jr's MOTHER JUSTICE Reading Held in Hollywood

A private reading of the new play MOTHER JUSTICE by Michael Dice, Jr. will be presented March 4, 2011 at the Shepard Studio in Hollywood, CA.

MOTHER JUSTICE is based on the Vanity Fair article of the same name by Christopher Ketcham.

When her son was sentenced to 25 years for Brooklyn's 2003 "grid kid" slaying, Doreen Quinn Giuliano was sure he'd been wrongfully convicted. To prove it, she went undercover, testing her sanity, her marriage, and the justice system.

Directed by Brian Nitzkin, the cast includes Melinda Augustina, Donnie Smith, Enrico Natale, Peter DeLuca, Max Bogner, Jonathan Salisbury, Mike Disch, Alan Aymie, Evan Cuthbert, Tania Verafield, Leslie Connelly, and Damian Pelliccione.

Michael Dice Jr. began his professional career in the performing arts while still a student at Illinois State University, taking up playwriting. By graduation, his work had already been produced by the Illinois Shakespeare Festival, Chicago Dramatists, the New Millennium Theatre Company, the San Francisco Playwrights Foundation, and the American College Theatre Festival, and had been awarded the National AIDS Fund Award in Playwriting from the Kennedy Center, and published by the Dramatic Publishing Company. Mike continued his education at Ohio University, studying under Pulitzer finalist Charles Smith, and earning an MFA in Playwriting in 2004. Dice joined Chicago Dance Crash the following fall, co-creating the long-running late night dance-improv hit "The KTF Championship" with Mark Hackman, and penning the books for the award-winning "Ghost Play" and "Tiger Prawn: The Mountain Mover," which was honored as a selection by the City of Chicago's Department of Cultural Affairs with inclusion in their 2007 Storefront Theatre Season. Dice recently resumed his performance career with a featured role in the Mary Arrchie Theatre Company's production of "Cherrywood," directed by David Cromer.
