It's Time for Rupert Holmes, Sebastian Arcelus, Tonya Pinkins and the Cast of A Time to Kill to Meet the Press

Adapted from best-selling author John Grisham's first novel, A Time to Kill is the story of Carl Lee Hailey (played by John Douglas Thompson) a black man who kills two white men accused of assaulting his young daughter. Based on real experiences from Grisham's legal career, the story delves into issues of race and the fairness of the legal system. At a Sept. 16 press day, Rupert Holmes (stage adaptation) and cast members Sebastian Arcelus, Tonya Pinkins, Patrick Page, Tom Skerritt and Ashley Williams chatted with Playbill about the lure and popularity of Grisham's legal dramas and the collective desire to have the play ask questions rather than provide answers. Read the Playbill story.
