Petty Crimes

Performance Dates: March 2-4, 9-11 at 8pm and March 5 at 3pm


Generations and privileges collide in the world premiere of local playwright and attorney Kristin Andrea Hanratty’s new play as we’re all asked: if not all people are treated equally by the system, at what point do we need to bend the system, and at what point does it break?
While high-profile trials occupy the nation’s collective consciousness and determine the fate of billionaires, six strangers from Northern Michigan are summoned to serve on the jury for a trial surrounding a Hispanic teenager’s alleged minor misdeeds. In their confined quarters, the group must grapple not only with the case at hand but what it means to be fair and just in a society that is not just or fair to
everyone. Is it possible to do what’s “right” when the law is black-and-white, but the world is anything but?
