THE STORY: Within the confines of the Visit Room, emotionally charged meetings between incarcerated individuals and their visitors expose the reality of our American jail system. We observe how the impact of incarceration diminishes any chance of success for those who have served their time. Following five incarcerated individuals and their loved ones, this work brings to light critical systemic failures and questions who belongs on which side of the bars.
“…BETWEEN THE BARS [emphasizes] the humanity of its subjects, rather than the sensationalism of their crimes.” —TheaterMania.
