Straight from today’s headlines, Splintered Judgement, delves into the required Minimum/Maximum sentencing guidelines.
Joe, a two time felon is sentenced to life in prison following an encounter where he uses and fires a weapon.
After being convicted and then subsequentially sentenced Joe manages to escape, grab a gun and then inadvertently end up in the deliberation room where the jurors have been delayed and anxiously waiting to leave the courthouse.
The drama begins when Joe confronts the very people who just convicted him and are unaware of the sentencing.
Written by Allie Howe and directed by Byron Spires the play is based partly on real events and is a riveting roller coaster of emotion.
Splintered Justice is about conflict, compassion and tragedy.
Each of the six jurors are forced to confront their decisions and their own prejudices.
The play contains adult language and some violence including a gunshot. It is not recommended for young children.
Splintered Justice will be on the stage at Goodwood Planation’s Carriage House July, 18th, 19th and 20th. Times are Friday and Saturday nights at 7:30.
The Sunday afternoon show will be at 3 p.m. and will be followed by a forum discussion about Mandatory sentencing.
