In Wad, local playwright, ACT favorite and member of the Core Company Keiko Green weaves together a darkly humorous, unpredictable tale.
Jim is on death row. Nyce is his pen pal. She swears she’s 18, but maybe she’s not. In any case, she’s just a high school kid with a true crime obsession and a crappy home life. As Jim’s execution date nears, he and Nyce live out alternate realities, fantasize about death and dying, tell a bunch of lies and eventually get to something close to the truth.
