Five formerly incarcerated men redefine their personal narratives using themes from The Winter’s Tale

Friday, March 6 at 7:30pm

TheatreWorks Project provides opportunities for reentering and incarcerated individuals to redefine their personal narratives through theatre, movement, and writing. Through Project Re/Frame, an initiative dedicated to the creation of pieces based on the writing and stories of those impacted by mass incarceration, participants have the opportunity to develop, rehearse and perform original work presented to diverse audiences. This newest project uses the following text from Shakespeare’s The Winters Tale as a launching off point for personal storytelling: “a wild dedication of yourselves. To undiscovered waters, undreamed shores.” TheatreWorkers Project is dedicated to providing opportunities for members of underserved and marginalized communities to tell their stories through the medium of theatre and to providing classical and contemporary theatre experiences that reflect and illuminate the human condition.
