Latest Happenings

We have had a great couple of months touring our show, ending with a wonderful run at a Department of Youth Services lock-up facility in Taunton MA and the Violence Prevention Forum at I.B.A. in the Boston south end. Over the summer, we will be soliciting interest in our Orientation Workshops, participating in some development events and celebrating our work. Look for our upcoming shows this fall.

    Revolution is a symphony of liberations.

    Our 8th season is off to ta great start. wE opened at the Horace Mann Auditorium at Boyden Hall, Bridgewater State University. Our thanks go out to Marlene DeLeone for organizing this event. Love and congratulations to all the actors and to the production staff.

    We performed at the Taunton DYS last night and what an evening: a great show for an audience of 12 or so teens and another ten or so staff. Then we all sat and ate together, breaking bread talking about the work, our lives, what ifs, and the world outside. The commitment of the actors made it possible for these young men to open up and taste connection for at least a couple of hours.

    It has been a great week for ASWR: shows at the DYS at Taunton for a group of 11 youth and staff, then three days later at an arts therapy conference at Lesley University. Powerful performances and talk backs at both venues. Last week we performed at Hibernian Hall with True Story
    Theatre. Tomorrow at the Groves conference on Marriage and Family, focusing on the impact of incarceration on families. ASWR strides on!

    this is a quote from an interview with Eddie Ellis in Sun Magazine. A former prisoner having served 25 years, he runs an organization that works with people returning from prison:

    Interviewer: How can we help people who are leaving prison?

    Ellis: We hesitate to refer to the process of returning home from prison as “re-entry.” Reenter means “to enter again” and a majority of the poeple we work with were never a part of mainstream institutions, functional families, the legal job market, or a supportive faith community in the first place. So for them it’s not a case of re-entry but of coming into an entirely new situation.

    Does this resonate with people?
