Can you be innocent though proven guilty? Inspired by actual events, Coyote on a Fence tells the story of two men living on death row under vastly different circumstances. Young Bobby Reyburn is a likable, illiterate member of the Aryan Brotherhood who committed a horrific crime. John Brennan is an educated, arrogant writer whose crime may actually be deemed a favor to society. Who deserves to die? With language both powerful and precise this timely and provocative play raises the question whether one can be sentenced to death but worthy of life.
