In the wake of the fallout from a false sexual harassment complaint, “City Jail” explores the intricacies of being a victim of harassment, while presenting the repercussions of a false accusation. A complex tale that twists the arm of what is true, this play investigates the nature of social policy.
“We are honored to collaborate with Catherine Adams to present ‘City Jail’ as a world premiere,” said theater supervisor at the Abbey Theater of Dublin. Joe bishara noted. “Bringing this new play to the Abbey Theater stage aligns directly with our new direction in theatrical programming. We are excited to host the play in January for its premiere in November. “
