he final event of 2020 is Lockdown, presented in partnership with Rattlestick Playwrights Theater (Daniella Topol, Artistic Director; Yue Liu, Managing Director) on DECEMBER 3. Inspired by her conversations with people serving life sentences at San Quentin Prison, the reading of this searing and beautiful play by Cori Thomas (When JANUARY Feels Like Summer) will reunite the playwright and director of the acclaimed Rattlestick Playwrights Theater production. Lockdown is an authentic, intimate, and powerful examination of life in prison, and an exploration of the possibilities for transformation through human connection. The New York Times calls Lockdown, "Capaciously compassionate. A rare night at the theater, and a valuable one." The reading will be available online following the live broadcast, until DECEMBER 7.
