About this show

The Actor's Playhouse presented the original production of Fortune and Men's Eyes almost 40 years ago to critical acclaim, yet it could not be more relevant. It is a shocking play, even by today's standards, because of its candid depiction of what people can do to themselves and others to survive. Set in a Canadian juvenile penitentiary, the play chronicles Smith as he learns the ropes of his new home. The play is an atom-smasher, slamming the wide-eyed Smith into the nucleus of three cell mates, Rocky, Queenie, and Mona, who are bonded not to each other, but to the harshness of prison life. Appropriate For Ages: 18 and up
