A woman falls down an internet rabbit hole about women who fall in love with inmates on Death Row, and learns for herself how easy it is for obsessions to begin.
A playwright is looking for an idea. During her research, she falls into an internet rabbit hole about women who fall in love with convicts on Death Row. Before she knows it, she has a pen pal called Jonny who is awaiting execution for murder. Their letters are heartfelt and, finding herself going to intense lengths to sustain their relationship, she starts to understand how those women in Netflix documentaries became so obsessed with serial killers. The Road to Huntsville is a sharp and speculative one-woman show about what can happen when you just can't stop thinking about someone.
