"Off The Hook": California Prison Play with Former Inmates!

A new and interesting way to experience the California correctional crisis through the eyes of inmates: The Poetic Justice Project offers its debut production, Off the Hook, which will be playing in various locations in CA. It is a play set in a California prison, it features formerly incarcerated people, and is based on their experiences.

I understand the play will focus, among other topics, on violence and race segregation in prison, which, incidentally, has been the focus of a recent Chron story highlighting the problems with racial classification and raising interesting questions about its inevitability.
