Prison Boxing


Written and performed by Leah Joki
Directed by Linda Grinde

Solo performance

Synopsis: Leah Joki spent 18 years in prison . . . not as a criminal . . . as a teacher. Now, she brings to life the complex characters she encountered in her two decades teaching in the California Penal System. Prison Boxing is a personal reflection on the prison system subculture from humorous to utterly horrifying. A journey that asks the questions: "Why did I choose to do that in my life?" "Would I do it over again?"

Reviews

THOROUGHLY ENTERTAINING and informative 70 minutes – TheatreSpoken Here

RECOMMENDED!
An IMPORTANT SHOW TO SEE, not just because it is a FINELY EXECUTED one-woman performance but also because of the way Joki's show addresses with such HUMANITY the industrial prison complex in this country - StageRaw

ENJOYABLE. ... one woman’s efforts to create a change, one inmate at a time. ABSORBING and intense play. Thought provoking - LA Splash
