WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Returning to New York directly from a sold out run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Billy Hayes recounts the riveting true story of his arrest in Istanbul in 1970 for smuggling hash, his 5 years in prison, his spiritual awakening, and his brazen, harrowing escape, rowing 17 miles across the Sea of Marmara in a raging storm in the dark of night. 39 years later, Hayes remains a mythical figure – a cultural anti-hero known around the world.

Q&A with Billy after every performance!
