Lulu, I Hear You...Messages from the Inside During Covid-19

Lulu, I Hear You is a 30-character performance piece based on poetry and stories RTA received from the men and women we work with at NYS prisons during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Adapted by Joe Giardina and directed by Thomas Coté, the cast is made up of RTA alumni and teaching artists who wish to share the voices of our members still incarcerated. The piece was filmed at HERE Arts Center.

A talkback following the performance featured RTA alumni released in 2020, who spoke directly to the experience of being locked down, locked in and released during a pandemic. View the Playbill here.
