Broken Morning: Stories from the Death Row Factory

About This Show

Crossing Jamaica Avenue and HERE Arts Center present Broken Morning: Stories from the Death Row Factory, a poetic dialectic between the prison industry, the prisoners, their loved ones, and the society that made them that way. Taking place in a sewing factory at the Ellis One Unit of the Huntsville State Prison where men awaiting execution go to work every weekday, the piece weaves personal stories and confessionals of sorrow, regret, pain, and optimism. The play-with-music is written by Chiori Miyagawa, with lyrics by Mark Campbell and music by Daniel Sonenberg.
