Producer’s Quote

Aurora Theatre Producing Artistic Director Anthony Rodriguez, “When our Education Director, Jaclyn Hofmann had our 2012–2013 Apprentice Company read this play as an acting exercise—I was moved. I not only knew that we had to produce it, I needed to personally be involved in the production. Anyone who has even needed or been granted a second chance in life should not miss this amazing play.”
