Mark Grey's Asylum opened at the Courtyard Theatre to a packed audience with every seat taken. With months in the making, the opening performance proved to be worth the wait. Chronicling the lives of three women detained in an asylum under the strict and rigorous jurisdiction of the warden played convincingly by Kaee Corion, the play unpacked a powerful display of intrig_MG_9911s1ue and interplay between the characters as they sought to find meaning and purpose to their lives. 

Each inmate together with the warden were exposed to their own areas of brokenness and how they each sought their desire for healing and restoration in different ways.
