Rave Reviews for ACME Theater's Latest Production

I heard today that ACME theater, over at ArtSpace Maynard, is currently performing and amazing play called "Coyote on a Fence". ACME's a small local theater company, and they're often putting out some fantastic works. I'm going to go and try to check it out myself.

Coyote on a Fence
By Bruce Graham

Directed by Dave Sheppard
Performance Dates: February 28, March 1, 7, 8, 14, 15, 21, 22 at 8pm and March 16 at 3pm. 
Adults $18 and Seniors/Students $16. 
Can one be innocent though proven guilty? Acme Theater explores this complex issue in the New England community theater premier of Bruce Graham's award-winning drama, Coyote on a Fence. This brave and gripping drama is inspired by a true story:  Convicted murderer John Brennan, a man with a proud, self-centered streak, is in denial about his role in the beating death of a drug dealer.  His new cell mate is Bobby Reyburn, white supremacist with mild developmental disabilities, is uneducated, and prone to fits of outrage. Bobby is on Death Row for committing a heinous racially-motivated murder. This shocking and heartfelt drama delivers on many levels as both await their fate, challenging our own feelings, prejudices and preconceived ideas. 
Note: This production features adult themes and language and racial remarks.
