NC-CURE seeks to raise public awareness about issues of concern in the NC prison system, one of which is excessive use of restrictive housing/solitary confinement. We are proud to be a co-sponsor of The Box, an immersive, transformative play that underscores both the horror of solitary confinement and the humanity of people subjected to it. Inspired by Sarah Shourd’s experience in solitary confinement as a political prisoner, the performance offers “a rare glimpse into the deep end of our prison system.” This play is a one-of-a-kind experience to examine the intersection of art and incarceration.
Formerly incarcerated people and survivors of solitary confinement will be performing at the Ramkat in Winston-Salem from August 25-27. The price of tickets is $20-$50, and doors open at 6:30 pm. Tell your families and friends that tickets are now on sale, so make a purchase before they are all sold out.
