Killing Crazy

Brian Bornstein

Monday, May 30 at 2 p.m.

Louis Righetti is a prisoner on death row whose competency to be executed is in question due to possible mental illness. As his execution date nears, he receives visits from the psychologist who is conducting his competency evaluation and from the prison chaplain, who offers him spiritual counseling. The play explores the legal, personal, and professional issues involved in executing someone who may not be of sound mind. Is it ethical to kill a crazy person, or is anyone who would kill at least a little bit crazy?
