HE DID IT
by Rachel Lynett
About the Play:
Lex, Ada, and Jefferson are about to get the greenlight from a major production company. They’re about to get everything they ever wanted. Except that Jefferson has been recently accused of violent crimes. Ada and Lex both know he did it. Now, they both must decide what’s more important: Career success or ending a vicious cycle? What can you excuse if it’s done by an artistic “genius”?
