PLAYWRIGHT Joshua Sobol :: DIRECTOR Guy Ben-Aharon :: FEATURING Jeremiah Kissel*
Koll is standing outside the prison gates. He picks up the phone, and makes a call. Entangled in a corruption case, this dynamic, spirited, sometimes too creative for his own good lawyer is being thrown into jail for misconduct in the courtroom—or is it for uncovering corruption in the system? This “edge of your seat” experience is about your putting together the missing pieces for this case as Koll calls his mother, wife, mistress, associate, and a cast of characters that live on the other end of the line. This hilarious 60-minute performance is a celebration of a brilliant legal mastermind who shines a light on corruption, and has a happy ending with all the women in his life.
