This was a staged reading of the Full-Length Version of A Night In Jail. The house was packed and we ended with a standing ovation. If you don't have time to put on a full production, a staged reading of either version of the play is an impactful choice.

This is a compelling six-minute video of scenes from the Full-Length Play. See how easily a theatrical group can produce this character-driven piece in an era of Social Distancing.


“I was privileged to attend a staged reading by four phenomenal actors in LA. Without any stage props and without any physical action, the tightly crafted dialogue between the cast was timed so perfectly that it brought frequent laughs, the occasional gasp, and a standing ovation at the end. The play version is a must see if it runs as a full production near you. Even if performed by a high school theater troupe it would be hard to miss the mark.”

“This is an extremely well written and riveting play which presents a real life story of mental illness and addiction. The character development, dialogue, and raw emotion are powerfully created. This play is perfect for a presentation in your community or school.”
