About this show

The Two Lives of Napoleon Beazley tells the true story of a 17-year-old African American honor roll student who in the midst of a carjacking murdered the father of a prominent federal judge. As Napoleon sits on Texas's death row, attorney Henry Boyd seeks answers as to how and why Napoleon got there and whether or not he can save his life. Employing courtroom transcripts, legal documents, media accounts, as well as personal interviews adhering to the facts of the case, The Two Lives of Napoleon Beazley offers a searing examination of race, redemption, personal identity, and the inner workings of the American legal system. This play is presented as part of Frigid New York
