This one-woman play by Janice L. Liddell gives voice to Lena Baker, who, in 1944 Georgia, killed her abusive, white employer in self-defense. Using actual trial transcripts, the play dramatically lays out the motivations for her actions, telling the story of her abuse, the killing, her trial, and ultimate execution.
