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 (The Dark at the Top of the Stairs, London and New York).
