Heart-rending drama about the aftermath of all-to-common injustice within our "Justice" system. Characters were fully human, mildly eccentric, and eminently likable!

Very clever set design and use of furniture. What I saw was the first preview, but it appeared ready to go on for real. Touching story, well written, well acted, and convincingly directed.
