Sean Christopher Lucas

Anthony Aicardi

When: Thursdays-Saturdays. Continues through Nov. 19 2016
Price: $20
This autobiographical solo show, written and performed by Sean Christopher Lewis, recounts his experiences conducting writing workshops with inmates at Graterford Prison, near Philadelphia, in the late aughts. As often happens, it's the teacher who was changed along with the students; a collage of portraits structured like a somewhat chaotic but fascinating mixtape, the piece speaks volumes about the depth of Lewis’s obsession with his material. He provides no easy answers to issues, whether personal or sociological. Instead, as in his other solo show, The Dogs of Rwanda, with which this is running in rep, Lewis raises lots of great questions meant to wake us up, and leaves us wanting to learn—and do—more. —Jack Helbig
