Transformational theater that asks us to re-examine long-held notions of punishment

Please join us September 10 – 12, 17-19, and 24-26 at Forest Meadows Amphitheatre for The BOX, a piece of transformational theater that asks us to re-examine long-held notions of punishment.

The pandemic has invited all of us into a space of deeper empathy and understanding of the harmful impacts of isolation and, by extension, prison.

Playwright Sarah Shourd and her team—with support from the Art for Justice Fund, the Pulitzer Center, and individual donors—present this national, pop-up tour of The BOX, a play based on true stories of resistance to solitary confinement written by Shourd, a survivor.

The tour is organized in partnership with local campaigns across the country, with the goal of elevating, supporting, and maximizing their impact.

Through theater, traveling visual art, and artistic ritual, this performance will create a space for collective healing. Each performance is followed by a survivor-led healing circle focusing on imagining ways to address and repair harm in line with transformative justice.

If you are formerly incarcerated, directly impacted by incarceration and/or need a free ticket please email

Seating is limited; Tickets are $40 each.

7:30 – 9:30 pm:  Doors will open at 7pm, and performances will be followed by an engagement circle that ends at 9:30.
