The Box: A Play about Solitary Confinement
I am sure this show will be amazing. Go if you can. Really.
From the event page:
In 2009, journalist and playwright Sarah Shourd was living in the Middle East when she went on a hike with her fiancée and a friend. Little did she know, she would spend the next 410 days in solitary confinement as a political prisoner.
The Box is Shourd’s new play ignited by that experience. Based on a deeply researched journalistic investigation, it is a piece of transformational theater that asks us to re-examine long-held notions of punishment as it reveals the tragic—and sometimes painfully comic and absurd—realities that dictate life “inside the box.”
