A play hosted by the UUSA Social Action Committee in conjunction with Prisoners’ Legal Services.  Longtime friends and current collaborators Sara (Mariposa) Fonseca and Julie Steele Allen have written a play through the prison wall.  Over the course of three years, crafted only by letters, they produced a story that is urgent, emotional and profound.  Now, from inside the isolation of solitary confinement, Mariposa speaks directly to an audience.  Her words will change you.  Join co-writer Julie Steele Allen for a performance of this play followed by a discussion with advocates, activists, formerly incarcerated individuals and their families.  Learn how you can help end the torture of prolonged solitary confinement.  For more information, please go to or contact Lizz Matos, Prisoners’ Legal Services at
