'if you make the disguise so Goddamn good, people forget you're in it.'

Welcome to Huntsville prison, Texas, 1959. Elyese Dukie sits on Death Row, guilty of two murders, but she is not alone... John Hayes is with her, as he has been all along....

A psychological thriller based on real life Death Row case histories and experiences. After a successful preview at the Tristan Bates, John Hayes set to perform for a full run at the Edinburgh festival this year. Welcome to an hour in the cell of middle America's most charming psychopath. Gallows humour, literally.

'Lucy Roslyn is utterly compelling... the writing is brilliant and the performance is magnificent'

'Beautiful and polished performance'

'Haunting... I didn't want the play to end.'
