American justice is a gripping play that will have you hooked from the moment it starts till the final bow. This play did everything theatre should do … it brought me into the lives of these characters and their stories and I didn’t want to leave. I could not stop thinking about Lee after it was over. Great casting and great acting. This is definitely one of the ones you don’t want to miss this fringe!
