THE END OF ISOLATION TOUR
The End of Isolation Tour is a touring theatrical production centered around the play, The BOX, written by solitary survivor Sarah Shourd in collaboration with other solitary survivors.
The End of Isolation Tour is more than a theatrical production, it’s a movement founded and led by survivors of torture; this movement has already made concrete impact – changing legislation and creating community.
Presented by The Pulitzer Center, the tour brings immersive, transformative theater to communities across the country on the front lines of imagining a world without prisons and the torture of solitary confinement.
It’s reach is beyond traditional theater, impacting communities and changing policy. Amplifying local programs for collective healing and restorative justice, the tour is a process of building, strengthening, and knitting together multiracial communities across the country that embodies the antidote to prison and isolation.
Many Unlock the Box campaign states are supporting the End of Isolation Tour as Community Partners. Stops on the tour have been strategically chosen as places with the most promise of making a direct impact on ending the use of solitary confinement and imagining a world without prisons.
The End of Isolation Tour bus hits the road in July and will visit nine cities in two months. Check the map below to find the closest venue to you!
