A production of Still Point Theatre Collective in Chicago, IL, “Strong Women” is a dramatization of the experiences of women who have been incarcerated in Cook County Illinois Jail. The perspectives presented are the creative and poetic expression of these women…how they felt about being in jail, missing their children, and expectations of what would happen upon their release. This play is part of the Newman Foundation, Inc. Distinguished Speakers Program.
The Lexington-based Franciscan Peace Center is celebrating its 5th annual October FrancisFest with a 5-event “Pathways to Peace” series that embodies a variety of genres: live theatre, documentary film, dance, live presentations and discussions. All events are free and open to the public.
