“The Box” End of Isolation Tour – In Person

August 17 - August 18

The End of Isolation Tour  Presents The BOX – In Person
Wednesday, August 17 & Thursday, August 18
7 pm – 8:30 pm

The End of Isolation Tour (EIT) presents The BOX, a play written by Sarah Shourd, a survivor of solitary confinement, in collaboration with other survivors. The BOX is a play about collective resistance and personal transformation inspired by stories in U.S. prisons collected through years of in-depth letter correspondence and visits with incarcerated people across the country. The BOX is a rare glimpse at the intimate bonds forged in the deep end of our prison system, the ripple effects of systematic torture, and what it means to be human. EIT will bring immersive, transformative theater to communities across the country on the front lines of imagining a world without prison and the torture of solitary confinement. We are more than theater alone. We are a catalyst for building, strengthening, and knitting together communities across the country on the frontlines of ending torture and isolation.
