Mariposa and the Saint
by Julia Steele Allen
Directed by Noelle Ghoussaini
Longtime friends and collaborators, Mariposa Fonsenca, serving a twelve year sentence and Julia Steele Allen, a prison-reform activist, wrote a play through a prison wall. Over the course of three years, they smuggled out this urgent, emotional and profound story. From the inside of solitary confinement, Mariposa’s voice is brought to the stage by Julia Steele Allen and Javier Gaston-Greenberg.
