My overall impression
It’s John Grisham meets Tracey Letts meets Winter’s Bone as Lily Mercer deftly tackles difficult subject matter in her compelling new Southern Gothic courtroom thriller. The acting is superb and the staging is crisp and fast-paced as nary a beat is wasted in this exploration of damaged characters doing their best to function in their grossly dysfunctional society. Congrats to Ms. Mercer and the brave cast for fearlessly telling this story and raising awareness of its disturbing issues. A must see in this year’s festival.
