Dramatic Performance and Talk Back: Down the Rabbit Hole

Straight from her sold-out 2018 New York tour of The Peculiar Patriot, artist Liza Jessie Peterson has done it again with her new play, Down The Rabbit Hole. The play is the story of Peterson's journey into the prison system over two decades and how this starry-eyed actress tumbled down the rabbit hole of mass incarceration to find great purpose teaching incarcerated teenagers at Rikers Island while fighting to keep her dream of being an artist alive. A funny thing happens when purpose meets passion in prison and this artist has the hilarious and harrowing receipts. With striking clarity, sharp humor and heart-felt insight, Liza’s journey unfolds as her depth of inquiry reveals a shockingly entrenched system unique to the USA.

Presented by Hofstra Cultural Center, in collaboration with ongoing exhibition, Hidden in Sight: Photographing Incarceration
