In partnership with the Cook County Temporary Juvenile Detention Center, St. Leonard’s Ministries, the Greatbooks Foundation, Orr Academy High School, Raven Theatre, and Free Write Jail Arts & Literacy Program Director, Ryan Keesling (aka DJ and Producer, Searchl1te)

Devised in collaboration with a host of Chicago-based partners, Broken Text creates a platform to explore the diverse experiences of Chicagoans, including those who have been incarcerated in the Chicago prison system. Based on stories gathered through educational residencies, this collaboration examines the past, present, and future of individuals in these communities by giving a voice through theatrical and musical interpretation to stories previously untold.
