MAR 16 – APR 11

There’s a vicious killer on the loose and the kindhearted Douglass finds himself the unwitting target of detectives who need a win at any cost. Desperate to seek justice, Douglass sets out on a harrowing, fantastical quest to find the true perpetrator. In this riveting world premiere by Lyle Kessler, the lines between good and evil blur in a divine search for redemption.
