Strong Women: Play & Discussion “The Power of Grace”
The Power of Grace is a short theatrical piece created from poetry written by women incarcerated at the Cook County Jail. The show was created in partnership with Grace House, a transitional home for women exiting the Illinois prison system.
This piece communicates the thoughts and feelings of incarcerated women to the general public in order to break down stereotypes and encourage awareness regarding the U.S. criminal justice system.
