PTD Productions Presents
COYOTE ON A FENCE
By Bruce Graham
March 6-8, 13-15, 2014 @ 8 pm
March 9 @ 2 pm
The first show of the 2014 season for PTD is Coyote on a Fence by Bruce Graham, a compelling drama of men on “death row” in an American prison. You may think you know who they are, but you may be surprised at what you find: surprising humor, dignity, and humanity.
Warning: The language is extremely raw. The author employs the coarse profanity, racial slurs, and casual blasphemy used by desperate men (and often, the guards as well) to communicate in their closed world. You will learn what life (and the alternative) can really be like behind bars.
Tickets: General Admission: $18 Students/Seniors: $12

Kelly lives with her family in Clarkston, Michigan and thoroughly enjoys the commission and privilege of motherhood. Belly Button Love reinforces the organic and profound love that a mother has for her child. A dialogue centered on the belly button, the special place we were one with our mother. It’s a very rare and emotional journey for all ages.
“It’s the love and connection to my children that inspired my creations for this awesome mother and child children’s book,” says Maria. And Kelly adds, “The belly button is our lifeline to living and love before we are born and it never goes away, nor does the love of a mother.” You can learn more about this book on the Belly Button Love website.
