Longtime friends and current collaborators Sara (Mariposa) Fonseca and Julia 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 Julia 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.
