Iron City Magazine

Iron City Magazine is an online and print journal devoted entirely to writing and art from the prison world. It is their hope that through this creative platform, people in prison find value in their stories, fuel their personal growth, and feel pride in their accomplishments. Prisoners own stories worthy of telling and sharing. Iron City Magazine aims to highlight these stories in a way more permanent than a private journal.


Performances: Providence, RI

Freedom Project

Tours through 2017

Freedom Project is a multi-disciplinary documentary theater production that shares the stories of people who have been marginalized by America’s criminal justice system. The project examines and critiques that system through the juxtapositions of personal stories with jarring statistics that reveal gross racial and socio-economic disparities in the way the law is applied, especially in regard to the War on Drugs.


Workshop: Chapel Hill, North Carolina
