Introducing “Lessons in Isolation” (hard-earned wisdom from people who know isolation)

In mid-February, we began working with our cast of community members who have been affected by incarceration.

Former inmates and corrections officers, family members of people who are incarcerated, Department of Corrections staff, and restorative justice advocates were all getting to know each other and preparing to make a unique new play about the experiences and effects of the incarceration system in our world.

Then our world entered lockdown.

We asked our cast if they might share some of the lessons they have learned in their life about how to deal with isolation.
