The Fear of 13

Author(s): Lindsey Ferrentino Company: Donmar Warehouse
Venue: Donmar Warehouse, London Dates:

“The first thing you should know is that this is true. It’s what actually happened.

I know it seems like it’s a story—inside of a story— inside of a story.

—but that’s how it is for most people. At least the ones in here.”

Nick’s got a story to tell you. About how a routine traffic stop turned into a conviction for murder. About how he spent the next 22 years on Death Row. About how he finally petitioned the court to ask not for an appeal, but for his execution date. And about what happened next…

Based on the true story of Nick Yarris, Academy Award winner Adrien Brody makes his London theatre debut in the world première of The Fear of 13, a new play by Lindsey Ferrentino (Ugly Lies the Bone) directed by Justin Martin (Prima Facie).
