The play takes place during a graveyard shift in a big city police booking room where alleged criminals' mug shots are taken by two cops, a hardened veteran and a rookie on her first night. Some of the "criminals" include an African-American graduate student who infiltrated a meeting of the Klan; a drunken driver who caused a fatal accident; a pistol-packing pizza delivery woman; a husband who helped his dying wife commit suicide; a raving husband obsessed with the talk-show host who has influenced his newly liberated wife; and others. Pathetically, tragically and sometimes comically, they reveal their lives and what led them to be charged with a crime. Premiered on the East Coast at the Burt Reynolds Institute for Theatre Training in Florida and on the West Coast at the Tamarind Theatre in Los Angeles. Later adapted into a movie for Showtime.
