Nora’s Playhouse is pleased to announce the first public reading of whatdoesfreemean?, a new play by award-winning playwright Catherine Filloux. Developed in collaboration with Nora’s Playhouse and the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, whatdoesfreemean? takes us into the cell and the mind of its central character, Mary, an African-American woman who is serving time for an undisclosed crime. Her days in solitary confinement are spent trying to keep her sanity in the face of loneliness, indifference, human cruelty, and loss. As she grapples with internal voices that threaten to loosen her grip on reality, anger, outrage, strength, and humor carry Mary through her period of incarceration and beyond.
