Broken Text creates a theatrical platform to explore the diverse experiences of men who have been incarcerated in the Illinois prison system. Based on stories collected through interviews with men in transition at St. Leonard’s Ministries, this docu-drama examines the past, present, and future of these individuals and the communities in which they live. Through theatrical interpretations written and devised by Mechelle Moe of Raven Theatre, original spoken-word responses by Senn Arts HS students, musical selections by living composers Marc Mellits, Edgar Meyer, and John Adams performed by Fifth House Ensemble, and soundscapes by DJ/Producer, Searchl1te, these previously untold stories find a voice.
