University of Lynchburg Theatre’s production of Insights from Inside, set for Nov. 13-16, is based on the book by the same name. This inspirational dramatic adaptation reaches out to young people to keep them from making decisions that cut short lives and waste years.
The book is a series of testimonials from prison inmates in the state of Virginia. A group of community activists are working to educate area at-risk youth that may be walking a thin line between freedom and incarceration.
“Our dramatic adaptation uses testimonials from the book as well as research we have conducted on our own to examine both our personal responsibility and societal responsibility in dealing with incarceration in America,” said Geoffrey Kershner, assistant professor of theatre.
Tickets are $5 and may be obtained at the Box Office: 434.544.8380 or online at www.LynchburgTickets.com, as well as at the door. Productions are in the Dillard Fine Arts Theatre, Nov. 13-15 at 7:30 p.m. and Nov. 16 at 2 p.m.
