WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Down on Griffin Alley, written by Connie Winston and Jean Randich, is an anti-death penalty, love story performance piece based on the life, trial, and execution of Lena Baker, an African-American maid in Cuthbert, Georgia. Lena Baker was wrongfully convicted of killing her ex-lover and employer, Ernest Knight, a white man who had locked her up in his gristmill to keep her against her will. Through actual trial testimony and devised scenes, this show explores what was said and what was silenced.
