    Cato fully renders this bleak reality in bite-sized form without sacrificing an ounce of truth.

    In a mere 12 pages we grow to know, feel, and care for these unfortunate souls as they pave a path to freedom despite the free market's boot firmly planted on their necks. A galaxy divides ideals and action.

    They say a good attitude is all you need. Easy to say when you're due for a transfer.

    "American Made" packs quite a punch in ten short minutes. Cato gives us two fully realized characters battling the problems they experience while in incarceration. A heartbreaking and important piece.

    CHRISTIN EVE CATO’s play, “American Made”, is an interesting look at the life of two prisoners and how they attempt to cope in jail. Each wants a better life, but there are obstacles. Can things change for the better? What drives a person in prison to try?
