After 23 years on Death Row a convicted murderer petitions the court asking to be executed. This is his story but as he begins to tell it we gradually learn that nothing is quite what it seems.
The Fear of 13 is a daring experiment in storytelling, a psychological thriller constructed from a single four-day long interview. In a monologue that is part confessional and part performance, Nick, the sole protagonist, tells a tale with all the twists and turns of classic crime drama.
As the story unfolds it reveals something much deeper about the liberating power of love and literature. A final shocking twist casts everything in a new light.
