An eye-opening look at the personal stories of women who have been in prison, “In My Shoes,” will be presented by the Judy Dworin Performance Project (JDPP) at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 27, in Ives Concert Hall in White Hall on the Western Connecticut State University Midtown campus, 181 White Street in Danbury.
A sold-out Hartford Stage crowd was mesmerized last December when the JDPP opened its 25th anniversary season with “In My Shoes.” This spirited, soul-searching performance piece asks, “What would it be like to be in my shoes?” With startling clarity and compassion, “In My Shoes” examines the choices and twists of fate that lead to incarceration. It also tells of perseverance and hope, atonement and redemption found in walks during “time in,” the pathways out of prison and what it means to be truly free.
This performance is being brought to WCSU through a grant from the New England Foundation for the Arts, as well as Western’s Ancell School of Business. Tickets for the performance are $15 and are available at www.wcsu.edu/tickets or (203) 837-TIXX. The public is invited. In the case of inclement weather, the snow date will be Wednesday, Nov. 4.
