Turning Points

Presented by TheatreWorkers Project 
In partnership with The Francisco Homes

June 1 at 4pm and 7pm

Can you remember a time when you felt you were at a crossroads? When your life might take a turn for the better? Or for the worse? Most people take these moments for granted, allowing them to pass and accepting whatever comes our way. In this production of Turning Points, six men on parole from serving life sentences express the genesis and impact of their turning points through poetry and prose. During the Second Act discussion that follows the staged reading, the audience will have an opportunity to reflect on and examine their turning points and dialogue with the cast and creative team.

Pricing: Tickets for this performance are Pay What You Choose with price options at $10, $20, and $30. Higher-priced ticket options help support TheatreWorkers Project and A Noise Within’s Noise Now program.

"There are surprising turning points; there is the straw that breaks the camel's back, and you never know if your action could be the straw. "
--Frances Moore Lappe
