Play challenges death penalty views; local man plays killer in ‘Lucasville’



It has played in unusual places, including churches and a community center, and is presented more of a staged reading than a full-scale play in order to fit the spaces.

“This is 13 chairs and a narrator stand and a stage manager stand,” Perry said.

The grueling pace of maintaining his job in marketing at the Quaker Steak and Lube, Sharon, while driving several hours for rehearsals and performances has Perry joking of shaving and cutting his hair.

“I’m gonna stick to musical comedy,” quipped Perry, whose next role will be directing Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” in Buhl Farm park, Hermitage.

But, he said he probably would do something like “Lucasville” again.

“Somebody has to do it,” he said. “I’m able to do it. I’m qualified to do it.”

“Lucasville” will be staged at 7:30 p.m. Sunday in First Unitarian Universalist Church, 1105 Elm St., Youngstown. The play is for mature audience and contains offensive language and discussion of prison rape and violence. Tickets and info: and 330-746-3067.
