In 2011, Georgia executed Troy Davis, a death row inmate convicted of killing a Savannah police officer. The case sparked international interest. Leaders including former President Jimmy Carter, Pope Benedict XVI, and former Georgia Congressman Bob Barr spoke out against the execution. A play at the Synchronicity Theatre in Atlanta presents both sides of the Troy Davis case. It's called "Beyond Reasonable Doubt: The Troy Davis Project." Playwright Lee Nowell explains why she wanted to tell this story.

"I gave equal validity to anyone's emotion that they had about the case, and I believe people suffered because of the case regardless of which side they were on." - Playwright Lee Nowell
