I Am a Miracle because I ain’t left yet.  It must be a miracle.

Marvin Lee Wilson was convicted of murder in 1994. Lawyers said his IQ of 61 meant he wasn’t competent to commit premeditated homicide. Yet in 2012, after 18 years on death row, he was executed.

The ever-inventive Declan Greene uses Wilson’s final words as the genesis for a work of monumental scope. Set to a stirring choral score, this transcendent new play stretches from Melbourne to the Texas State Penitentiary, with the indomitable Melita Jurisic evoking a symphony of voices who have glimpsed through the veil to the other side.

Terrifying, humbling and deeply human, I Am a Miracle yields an ecstasy that echoes on and on.
