Mariposa & the Saint: A Play Through Letters

At Unitarian Universalist Society of Amherst, 121 N. Pleasant St., Amherst, MA

Ending Prolonged Solitary Confinement

Longtime friends and current collaborators Sara (Mariposa) Fonseca and Julia Steele Allen have written a play through the prison wall. Over the course of three years, crafted only by letters, they produced a story that is urgent, emotional and profound.

Now, from inside the isolation of solitary confinement, Mariposa speaks directly to an audience. Her words will change you. Join co-writer Julia Steele Allen for a performance of this play followed by a discussion with advocates, activists, formerly incarcerated individuals and their families. Learn how you can help end the torture of prolonged solitary confinement.

For more information, please go to www.plsma.org/Mariposa or contact Lizz Matos, Prisoners’ Legal Services, at lmatos@plsma.org.

Light refreshments will be served.

Free, donations welcome.

Hosted by the Unitarian Universalist Society of Amherst in conjunction with Prisoners’ Legal Services and EMIT.
