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 www.plsma.org/Mariposa or contact Lizz Matos, Prisoners’ Legal Services at imatos@plsma.org.
