Mariposa & The Saint: From Solitary, a Play Through Letters

March 2, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

As part of its annual Criminal Justice Reform Advocacy Week, Criminal Justice Awareness and Action (CJAA) is proud to present the groundbreaking play, Mariposa & the Saint in the Carolina Union Auditorium.

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 smuggled out 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.

This event will be followed by a discussion with important figures in the Criminal Justice system.
