'Shocking, shattering, stunningly well-written' The Telegraph

'Like a shot of caffeine straight in the veins' Lyn Gardner for The Guardian

From Pulitzer Prize winner Stephen Adly Guirgis, comes this critically-acclaimed dark comedy about the American justice system and the contradictory nature of faith. 

Inside the lockdown wing of Rikers Island prison, a frightened young man accused of murdering a cult leader is confronted with a charismatic born-again serial killer and a sadistic guard.  Will one man’s redemption lead to another’s damnation?
