whatdoesfreemean? | a new play by Catherine Filloux


JULY 7 - 22, 2018



COST: $20

"whatdoesfreemean?" is the latest work by award-winning human rights playwright Catherine Filloux. It follows the journey of an African-American woman serving a long sentence for a non-violent drug offense. When Mary ends up in solitary confinement, she struggles to maintain her sanity. The play takes the audience into her psychic world. We travel alongside her self-guided intellectual and emotional journey into the nature of freedom, both physical and psychological, as Mary’s external and internal experiences unfold on stage in the present, in memory, and in the fantasies that help her survive.

With James Edward Becton*, Brenda Crawley, Justin Jorrell, Galway McCullough*, Liz Morgan*, and Lisa Strum* as Mary
