‘Run-On Sentence’ play shares the voices, stories of incarcerated women
Sheer enjoyment. Too bad you can’t “take the show on the road.” I’m sure a professional theatre can do no better than the authentic, gritty performance you gave the audience that day. The themes you expressed to Stacie Lents, playwright, rang loud and clear. “We are human beings...” and “It can happen to you.”

An amazing play with superb work from your cast. I was so honored to be with such strong women who are using that strength toward self- discipline as well as self-expression.
