Voices of the South-affiliated Storyteller Elaine Blanchard has been working with women in prison, gathering their stories, and converting them into narrative theater. I dropped in on a recent staged reading/fundraiser and shot a bit of video. Sadly, my camera was failing. But here's a video clip of Blanchard introducing Prison Stories and a 10-minute audio sample. This is a fascinating project and it continues to evolve as Blanchard collects more and more stories.
