After 17 years of wrongful incarceration, Glenn Cox came home to New York City in 2007 where his good nature and resilient spirit have been driving him in creative directions ever since.
Then after a decade of earning his livelihood as a singer, both underground and at venues around the city, he was faced like all New Yorkers with the sudden shutdown of the city. Now with time on his hands, he returned to the talent that had sustained him in prison-- painting. And writing. In the play 17 NORTH he recounts his macabre journey from Rikers to Attica until finally returning home to NYC.
