This drama is brilliantly and well acted. The two characters are superb in their roles. The problem is this and I am a fan of serious, thought-provoking drama: it is hard to be an audience member, not so much due to the subject matter but due...continued

Quotes & Highlights

“The play is shaped with compassion, but there is never even an echo of special pleading. Ms. Moss’s goal is to convey, in visceral terms, the disorientation of lives resumed after rending, warping interruptions. And you don’t have to have done time to identify with Lorraine and Marie’s addled, anguished sense of time.” —New York Times
Read the interview with director Sheila Daniels.
Read about the play’s preview at Washington Corrections Center for Women.

Description

Special Post-Play discussions on Saturday, May 26 and Sunday, May 27. SPT Artistic Director, Shana Bestock and Director Sheila Daniels lead an illuminating panel discussion with former prison inmates and leaders from the Project IF. These discussions will take place directly after the play. 

Project IF has been asking women in prison, “If there was something someone could have said or done that would have changed the path that led you here, what would it have been?” The women’s responses are videotaped, and a team of former inmates, uses the videos in workshops with Seattle’s at-risk youth.

Recommended for teens on up. 

About the Ticket Supplier: Seattle Public Theater

Founded in 1988, Seattle Public Theater was originally a small company that primarily toured plays in local Seattle public schools and worked with adult and at-risk youth populations to create socially conscious theater. In 2000, Seattle Public was chosen by the City of Seattle in a competitive bidding process to be the resident theater company at the historic Bathhouse. Since then Seattle Public has had a remarkable rebirth to become one of Seattle's premiere mid-sized theaters, renowned for both an ambitious education program as well as high-quality professional productions.
