The Captives

by Barbara Blumenthal-Ehrlich

Featuring Izzy Castaldi, Nathan Darrow, Susan Hyon, Chris Kuiken, Naja Selby-Morton, Jenny Solomon, and Temesgen Tocruray

Painting death-row meals on china plates may seem like a quirky artistic endeavor, but Professor's made quite a name for herself doing just that, without ever meeting an actual prisoner. Now, pressured by her tenure committee, she agrees to meet face-to-face with an inmate about to die. But Texas inmate Trevor Monroe wants a stay of execution, not a final meal, setting in motion a social media frenzy and a series of life-altering events for the painter, the prison warden, and the man about to die.
