Description

Inspired by her decades-long work with prison populations, including on the notorious Riker's Island, Liza Jessie Peterson's timely and urgent one-person show unpacks the human impact of mass incarceration in America. Fearlessly funny, smart and provocative, "The Peculiar Patriot" traces the migration of systemic injustice from the plantation to the prison yard. Betsy LaQuanda Ross, Liza's narrator, is a self-proclaimed "peculiar patriot" who makes regular visits to penitentiaries to boost the morale of her incarcerated friends and family. Betsy is both victim and victor of this country's prison system and her story turns statistics into achingly relatable stories, drawn from the experience of more than 2.5 million people behind bars. Make sure to see "The Peculiar Patriot" at the Emerson Paramount Center's Jackie Liebergott Black Box in Boston.
