Daytona Massacre: A Play and Stories
Daytona Massacre is a courtroom drama set in Daytona Beach, Florida in 1997 that centers on a capital murder trial. On a June morning three black women are found brutally slain in a house on a quiet street on the mainland side of Daytona Beach. Rick Sands, Chief of the elite Homicide Trials Bureau is asked by the State Attorney to handle the case himself. Three lives intersect in the capital murder trial: Michelle Charles, the sole survivor of the massacre, an eighteen year old black woman who must find the strength to overcome her fear and despair to obtain justice for her slain friends; Craig Washington, a twenty six year black man determined to escape justice but who finds that he would rather be put to death than face the truth about his own childhood; and Rick Sands himself, who discovers that in seeking justice for the slain victims, victory must be redefined as something more than obtaining the ultimate verdict he seeks.
