This past March, the Prison Story Project team travelled to RLW Correction Center to present a staged reading from the work written by the project’s first class of men a year earlier. After the staged reading, the project held a two-day storytelling and creative writing workshop with 20 men who volunteered to participate.

The performance at St. Paul’s will tell the stories of the mistakes, the regrets, the dreams, and the hopes of those men.

Katie Nichol led the creative writing workshop with help from Matt Henriksen and Jane Blunschi. The staged reading is edited and directed by Troy Schremmer.

The event is free and open to the public, however, a $10 donation is encouraged. Doors open at 7 p.m.
