From solitary confinement, a play through letters

In 2012, Mariposa was sentenced to fifteen months in solitary confinement. Through letters with longtime friend and current collaborator Julia Steele Allen, Mariposa brings her experience to the stage.

Written by Sara (Mariposa) Fonseca and Julia Steele Allen
Directed by Noelle Ghoussaini
Featuring Ray Huth and Julia Steele Allen
Assistant Director/Stage Manager: Michi Osato and Heather Holmes

The performance will be followed by a discussion of solitary confinement, including the playwright, advocates from Prisoners’ Legal Services, and a person formerly incarcerated in solitary confinement in the Massachusetts penal system.

This symposium is presented with the generous support of the Betty & Matt Flaherty Endowment.
