The End of Isolation Tour (EIT) hits the road in July for ten stops across the country to perform “The BOX,” a play about solitary confinement, collective resistance, and transformation.
As a means to enact political change through legislative art and to promote healing by engaging people in the artistic ritual of therapeutic theater, the End of Isolation Tour centers around the play, “The BOX,” which underscores both the horror of solitary confinement and the humanity of people subjected to it. The play employs stories inspired by true events to bring awareness to the state-sponsored atrocities occurring in correctional institutions across the country.
“The BOX” is written and directed by Sarah Shourd, who was held in solitary confinement for over 400 days as a political prisoner in Iran. After discovering the prevalence of solitary confinement in the United States, she collaborated with other survivors and together, they have brought this project to life.
