Based on a true story. After a bad decision and a tragic twist of fate, a white man from an affluent, New Jersey town ends up in Rikers Island, completely out of his element. He struggles to navigate his way through the penal system in the company of his cellmates, a religious fanatic, a hardened drug dealer, and a transgender junkie. Beyond the jail politics, he must reconcile the need to fight for his survival with the guilt that consumes his every waking hour. Will he make it out for his tee time?

“With its commanding central performance, gripping story and accomplished presentation, A White Man’s Guide to Rikers Island is a rewarding experience.”

- Darryl Riley, TheaterScene.net

“Undeniably gripping...I’m betting that you’ll hang on every word”

- David Barbour, Lighting & Sound America

"This extraordinary triumph of storytelling... I found myself riveted on the edge of my seat."

- David Kennerly, Gay City News

“The message of A WHITE MAN’S GUIDE TO RIKER’S ISLAND confirms what we already know – justice isn’t blind, white privilege does exist, and awareness is the first step to healing.”

- Laurie Lawson, Electronic Link Journey
