6:00 PM   PROGRAM

Theater Group INTERSECTIONS performs a short one act play.   Don’t miss this powerful performance which is based on a variety of perspectives: letters from inmates housed in Vermont correctional facilities and out of state private prisons, first-person accounts by incarcerated women brave enough to share their stories, stories from victims’ and inmates’ family members, and the actors’ personal intersections with “corrections” and “justice.”

In light of the popularity of Orange is the New Black, national awareness of our mass incarceration crisis, as well as prisoners’ deaths and suicides from years spent in solitary confinement, INTERSECTIONS can be considered a call to action. As Vermont theatre artists, this creative team ties monologues and scenes into
a performance that explores why and how Vermonters should care about incarceration.

Actors: Kim Jordan, Jena Necrason, Kelly Jane Thomas, Todd Townsend. Director: Tara Lee Downs. Lighting Designer: Jeffrey E Salzberg
