    Broken Morning

    Read the Offoffoff review

    A poetic dialectic between the prison industry, the prisoners, their loved ones, and the society that made them that way. Taking place in a sewing factory at the Ellis One Unit of the Huntsville State Prison where men awaiting execution go to work every weekday, Broken Morning weaves personal stories and confessionals of sorrow, regret, pain and optimism. With reenactments and overlapping dialogue, the play illustrates how violence, poverty and struggle against society are connected to us all. The spare and simple songs deepen the expression of these conflicts. Broken Morning was commissioned by Dallas Theatre Center in 1996 with the support of TCG's Extended Collaboration grant. With this grant, the playwright traveled to Huntsville, Texas to interview men and women on death row, the death row guards, the Chaplain, and some family members of the victims, as well as a woman on death row in the Gatesville prison; and women from the Victims Outreach in Dallas. The play is fictional, but was written largely based on the actual interviews. Crossing Jamaica Avenue is a company of multicultural, multi-disciplinary artists led by two Japanese women, who work as a team to fuse the contemporary Western realities with Japanese sensibilities; western aesthetics with influences of traditional Japanese arts.
