A dark and stormy night, inside the dark, dank, damp walls of a Connecticut prison, just minutes before one of those midnights when a doomed convict’s dead-end life is finally going to end — The Valiant is all about the grim business of dying and the slim chance that a last-moment revelation might, or might not, bring a much needed note of redemption to the process.

James Dyke (John Chase) is a cold-blooded killer, plain and simple, and he’s about to die for his crime. The only trouble is, he’s not James Dyke — and the warden (Tim Beaudry), the chaplain (Laurie Duncan) and a stranger visiting from afar (Megan Wilson) all know it.

But getting the prisoner to face the truth before he meets his maker is no easy feat.

A pleasant but lighter-than-required revival of a circa-1921 suspense drama.

— Brad Oswald
 

From the official Fringe program:

Connecticut. 1921. Enigmatic murderer "James Dyke" has created a national stir in his determination not to reveal his true identity. On the eve of his execution, a young girl arrives, holding out hope of finding her long-missing brother... But could she even still recognise him? Suspenseful, touching and thoroughly human...

Fringe veteran John Chase remounts this award-winning script.
