I never even killed a bird

// a true story

Growing up in Texas, I was a geeky alcohol-abstinent God-fearing marching band member, so it seemed like an exciting idea to go with my friends to the abandoned orphanage out on Highway 1417. After a series of mishaps that includes stealth-crawling, fence-jumping and accidentally running from the police, we all end up spending the night in jail.

I never even killed a bird conveys the tale using storytelling and projected drawings.

Meet our cellmates, hear about the delicious chocolate cake and find out how my prison name came to be Harry Potter.
