Executing Justice

The Placeholder Show—Son of Warehouse

Bill patts takes a turn telling a dying inmates story. As the first person in 60 years to be executed this character’s got nothing to lose and tells it like it as. Our main subject was highly engaging and his story fascinating. This is helped by Bill Patts charisma as a story teller. The story also includes testimonies and accounts from supporting characters (also played by Patts) which adds more dimension to the story. While the main character was great I found the supporting characters weak and uninteresting, one of which just yelled at he audience for a solid 5 minutes. During those short monologues I was wondering how long before he gets back to the main character. This weakened the main characters final plight and show of insanity. The play was good but was uncomfortable and borderline disturbing at points. A very interesting play that lets you watch a man’s downward spiral to an early death with a full understanding of how he got there.
