Our team is grateful to each and every person who donated, volunteered and/or shared their stories. Without the support of so many people and organizations these stories would never have come to life. After seeing The Box many will find it hard to go back to the illusion that what happens behind prison walls stays behind prison walls.


This production of the Box would not be possible without the generous support of thousands of individuals and organizations who supported this project since its infancy. A list of donors can be found here.


Although the Box is a work of fiction, playwright Sarah Shourd drew on her own and others’ experiences in solitary confinement. Read more about the voices that made this play possible here.
