CAGED LIFE. BEYOND. BARS. Private Prisons are morally bankrupt * financially risky. 

Pulitzer prize-winning journalist and Truthdig columnist Chris Hedges has taught in America's most elite universities, including Princeton, Columbia, and New York University. 

It was a class at a Maximum Security Prison, however, where he found “more brilliance, literacy, passion, wisdom and integrity… than in any other classroom…”

In Hedges’ class, 28 men collaboratively wrote a play in which the drama of their lives, so often portrayed by others, is finally told in their own words.

Inspired by their exceptional talent, Hedges promised that he’d share their voices with the world and—somehow, someday—mount the play.

Now, over three years later, Hedges, along with, Boris Franklin, the only writer who has been released from prison to date, are planning to premiere “CAGED” at The Passage Theatre in Trenton, NJ, during their Spring 2018 season.
