Thanks to all who attended Beyond Prison Walls and our Discussion of Restorative Practices
Thank you for taking the journey with us from SDSU's Experimental Theatre to the experimental space of Zoom performances. Playwrights Project's first round of virtual Zoom productions, Beyond Prison Walls, was a joyful endeavor, a helpful learning experience, and an wonderful opportunity to celebrate our writers’ work.

Please complete our survey about the performance!
From O ut of the Yard to the online classroom- meet Shawn Khalifa!
Those who attended Beyond Prison Walls witnessed Shawn speak to the impact Playwrights Project has had in his life, encouraging him to learn and grow while incarcerated and providing a space for self-expression and camaraderie now that he is back on the community.

If you're interested in seeing more of Shawn or writing your own play, check out our YouTube channel for a series of videos featuring Shawn and Playwrights Project Teaching Artist Thelma!
