Sweeter Than Justice

 

 May 21, Sweeter Than Justice, Sarasota

7:30 PM The regional premiere of Robert Lipkin's Sweeter Than Justice, featuring Don Walker, Amanda Schlachter and Joseph Parra. Playwright Robert Lipkin says, "At its core, the play explores why the line between good and evil, heroes and villains, is so often blurred, and why the healing power of love and friendship is too often subrogated to the intoxicating power of vengeance. The play takes you back to 1963 for a clearer view of who we are today." Location: Asolo Rep's Cook Theatre Information: PageToStageProductions.com. or 941-359-0099
