“All that you touch You Change. All that you Change Changes you. The only lasting truth Is Change.”
– Octavia E. Butler, Parable of the Sower

TheatreWorkers Project provides opportunities for reentering and incarcerated individuals to redefine and reframe their personal narratives through theatre, movement, and writing. Inspired by the words of Octavia E. Butler, TheatreWorkers Project will collaborate with formerly incarcerated residents living at The Francisco Homes to develop an original theatre piece based on the participants’ poetry and prose. The culminating piece will be performed by the participants and followed by a Second Act discussion with the audience.

All audience members must show proof of full vaccination. Masks are required. All audience members 18 and older must show photo ID. As of January 4, children ages 5 to 12 must show proof of full vaccination instead of a negative Covid test result. Learn more about our Covid safety policy.
