The Show

American Justice, Richard Vergette’s excoriating play about guilt and redemption in America’s prison system is set during the 8 years of an Obama administration, when idealism and forgiveness may not be all it seems. A political thriller with a deeply affecting and surprising twist, American Justice has won plaudits from critics and audiences alike throughout the UK and makes its West End debut in a new version directed by Lisa Forrell (Tabloid Caligula, London and New York).

The Story

As Barack Obama sweeps to power, John Daniels is elected to Congress. The fulfilment of this political ambition is marred by personal tragedy when his only daughter is murdered in a random shooting by a feral, illiterate thug, Lee Fenton. Fenton is sentenced to death when Daniels, in an apparent act of altruism and Christian forgiveness, appeals for clemency on the condition that he be allowed to educate the boy himself.  The sympathetic court agrees, despite the objections of the prisoner and the hard-line prison Warden.  

As we progress through to Obama’s re-election in 2012, Fenton learns both to read and to question his teacher’s motives. When Obama's second term draws to a close, the Congressman's real motive is revealed and the convict makes a startling revelation of his own.
