Limited run – three nights only!

December 6-8, 2012 [get tickets]

Written and performed by Anne Stockton

Directed by Austin Pendleton

Based on the novel by Stewart O’Nan

Convicted murderer Marjorie Standiford has agreed to spend her last hours on Death Row talking into a tape recorder, answering questions posed by a celebrated author about her involvement in a killing spree, her drug addiction, wild sex life, and why she is where she is.

Adapted from the novel by Stewart O’Nan and starring Anne Stockton, this harrowing one-woman tour de force won for Outstanding Performance – Solo Show at the 2007 NYC Midtown International Theater Festival.

“…both satisfying and frightening…she’s captured Marjorie’s innocence and insanity.”

Stewart O’Nan, Author

“Performed by the remarkable Anne Stockton… this is a daring piece of theater. Austin Pendleton has directed the play with a keen understanding of the humanity within the monster.”
