As women, we are trained early in the craft of secret keeping. As men, we are trained to not show our emotions. How then do we talk to each other without judgement? Without fear? Without further injuring each other?

Holla is a performance about the impact of past incarceration, the continual threat of violence, and the constant fear of returning to jail. Holla is formerly incarcerated young men and women attempting to answer the questions we are often too afraid to ask each other.

In Between the Lines

When: May 8-9 at 7pm
Location: Bindlestiff Studio 185 6th St. San Francisco, CA

Racial profiling. Self-stereotyping. Addiction. Feelings of powerlessness. Poverty. Resentment. Getting caught up in "The Game." Keeping up appearances. Absent fathers. Vicious cycles. What are the real culprits behind bars?

In Between the Lines, the latest original play from the Community Works ROOTS Theater Ensemble, examines this question through the fictional narrative of "Ricky" and the people he has impacted with one bad decision. Based on the courageous voices of youth impacted by incarceration from Balboa High School.
