Positive

September 16th at 8:30pm

In a near future plagued by overpopulation, three prisoners with troubling medical conditions share a cramped cell. Tensions rise and fall as the forced intimacy of living in close proximity draws each of their stories unwillingly out into the open, challenging the certainty of who among them is a criminal and who is a victim. Written by Jess Meyer-Crosby, this one-act play intricately touches on many of today's timeliest issues by looking at them through an imagined lens of tomorrow.
