Playwrights Project partnered with San Diego State University to present the 7th season of Collage, featuring scripts written in our Out of the Yard program by playwrights at Richard J. Donovan Correctional Facility, Centinela State Prison, Community Transition Center, and Male Community Reentry Program.
