In conjunction with the New York premiere of the new drama, Something You Did, Primary Stages has organized a special series of post-performance forums on the topic of 'The Prison Nation.' Titled "The SOMETHING Forums," these intimate conversations will take place on four Tuesdays during the play's run, and has been curated (and will be moderated) by David Rothenberg, founder of The Fortune Society (and WBAI radio host).
Willy Holtzman's new play is the story of a notorious Sixties radical that has served nearly 30 years in prison for her part in the accidental killing of an African-American police officer during an explosive war protest. Now she is eligible for parole in a post 9/11 world where bombing is terrorism and dissent, treason. The play asks: How much can she be faulted for having a conscience? Is she guilty of bringing the war home?
The schedule for "The SOMETHING Forums" is as follows:
Tuesday, March 25th. Moderated by Glen Martin, The Fortune Society, With Willy Holtzman, Playwright, Something You Did, Nancy Lopez (ex-offender); Yolanda Morales (ex-offender); and Joanna Gleason, actor, Something You Did
