Please join the Angels Theatre Company and our local presenters as we discuss the impact of the Death Penalty on our state. With this issue continuing to capture local and national interest, it is time to engage in a dialogue on this important topic.

Killing Crazy by Brian Bornstein is a short play focusing on fictional death row inmate Louis Righetti.  By presenting a staged reading of Killing Crazy, our goal is to catalyze discussion about the state’s stance on capital punishment and the recent death penalty repeal.  Brian Bornstein is Director of UNL’s Law-Psychology Program.

The 40 minute reading is free, open to the public and followed by a facilitated conversation.
