WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Sometimes, the greatest injustice is the justice system itself. Inspired by Dr. Elizabeth Leonard's Convicted Survivors: The Imprisonment of Battered Women Who Kill, Warren Doody's Life Without Parole draws on the original transcripts and testimonies of women incarcerated at the California Institution for Women at Chino for killing their abusive partners. This play takes you "behind the barbed wire" exposing how these convicted domestic violence survivors bond together, explore their pasts, and survive when orange becomes their new black and blue.
