Tom Topor

Published by Dramatists Play Service

3 Male 0 Female

Having been detained for questioning, in a crime about which he claims to know nothing, a suspect is grilled by two persistent police officers

They call him "Byron" (although he insists this is not his name) and their initially bantering attitude turns steadily more ominous as they attempt to force a confession

Ultimately, in a scene of shattering intensity, they succeed - but disturbing questions linger. Have justice and truth indeed been served? Or has another hapless victim been sacrificed to society's inexorable need for retribution at any cost?

A successful Off-Off-Broadway production, also selected for inclusion in Best Short Plays, this gripping and powerful play probes into the helpless terror experienced by a suspect undergoing a relentless police interrogation

" a compelling, contemporary comment on society" ~ Show Business

" Mr Topor as a dramatist writes cleanly, with flair for sharp dialogue" ~ NY Post
