Two death row inmates, liberal political activist John Brennan and white-supremacist Bobby Alvin Reyburn, strike up an unusual friendship despite their conflicting views.
Death row cells, prison guard walk, visiting room, exercise yard and a local drinking hole are realistically detailed to evoke the oppressive atmosphere of death row. Prison bars separate the audience from the inmates; the play takes place behind bars.
