Lockdown takes an authentic, intimate and powerful look at the impact of long-term incarceration and the reality of what life inside prison is really like. Inspired by Cori Thomas's time with people serving life sentences at San Quentin Prison, Lockdown explores the possibilities for transformation through human connection.

Following each performance of Lockdown is a community conversation that creates an opportunity for audiences to discuss the play with guest speakers who have firsthand knowledge and expertise in criminal justice reform. This 25-minute moderated discussion will give the audience an opportunity to expand knowledge, deepen engagement and inspire action that can lead to vital policy changes.
