LOCKDOWN, at Rattlestick Playwrights Theater April 17 - May 19, 2019 (produced in association with ShadowCatcher Entertainment), tells the story of a writer who agrees to help a longtime inmate craft his parole statement. Their growing bond forms the heart of the play, an intimate and powerful look at the impact of long-term incarceration. Inspired by playwright Cori Thomas's work at San Quentin State Prison, LOCKDOWN explores the magical possibilities for transformation through human connection.
