Doin’ Time: Through the Visiting Glass written and performed by Ashley Lucas and
directed by Joseph Megel. examines the impact of incarceration on families. Ashley Lucas,
the child of an incarcerated father, conducted interviews in California, Texas, and New York with prisoners’ family members, former prisoners, and people who do work connected to prisons. She also corresponded with over 400 prisoners from across the U.S. Weaving together these interviews and letters with her personal experience as a prisoner’s child and creative writing, Lucas wrote a one­person play which she performs herself. Doin’ Time uses monologues to take the audience through a variety of perspectives on the families of the incarcerated. Since 2004, Lucas has performed Doin’ Time both inside
and outside prisons throughout the U.S. and in Ireland and Canada.
