A taut drama, the play follows what happens when the home of an ordinary Midwest suburban family is invaded and the residents held hostage by three escaped criminals. While the trio waits for an accomplice to bring money and supplies, the police are working to close in on the convicts’ location, thus putting the hostages in danger. Tension mounts as it becomes apparent that a confrontation will lead to the loss of lives.
This production is composed of students from both campuses.
Admission is $2 for students with a valid ID and $3 for adults. For more information, visit www.leyden212.org/finearts.
