Inspired by a real-life incident in the 1980s, 'Natural Life' explores the relationship between death row inmate Claire and TV reporter Rita. Rita's objectivity is challenged when she discovers the mitigating circumstances that drove Claire to commit her crimes, including abuse, forced prostitution, alcoholism, violence, and desperate but ill-fated attempts at redemption. In Rita's effort to "set the record straight," she bonds with her subject.
See it if You'd enjoy a condensed troubled life of a woman bringing in ethics of the death penalty, extenuating circumstances & honouring wish to die.
Don't see it if graphic violence and subject matter are too disturbing. This isn't a happy ride, but it's well worth taking.
See it if You want amazing acting in an intimate setting. Schreiber studio is tiny with big productions, better than Broadway and far cheaper.
Don't see it if You'd rather spend $150 on not so good productions on Broadway!
See it if looking for a powerful and relevant drama. It's a beautifully written true story that deserves to be recognized.
Don't see it if looking for a more light-hearted fare. This play has a lot of substance but there is graphic material that may make people uncomfortable.
See it if You have a soul. This play touched me in a way only a couple plays ever have. I was sobbing at the end of it. So real and so tragic.
Don't see it if You are looking for a lighthearted show.
