Working at the intersection of theater and captivity, these essays use dramas about incarceration to reveal the brutality of prison life and raise cultural and moral questions about the prison system. Examining the 'captivity dramas of playwrights that include Migdalia Cruz, Miguel Piñero, Samuel Beckett, and Americans Naomi Wallace, Tennessee Williams, and William Inge, these essays seek to challenge the silence and invisibility of prisons and prisoners..
