Listening details will be announced shortly. Check back soon!


Based on the oral history interviews that members conducted in Fall 2020, we will produce this new play exploring themes of family, harm reduction, and hopes and dreams of those who have experienced incarceration. Aiming to disrupt harmful stereotypes present in our community, this play centers the voices of those most directly impacted by pressing community concerns and amplifies them on the radio. The production on WRFI will be available live on the radio, via a podcast online, and will be followed by a dialogue with the production ensemble.

Full interviews will be available in The History Center in Tompkins County's oral history collection later this year.
