Originally written and performed by a group of men at the Nebraska State Penitentiary, More Than a Number shatters misconceptions and reveals the common thread of our humanity. Sharing glimpses of life before prison, at crucial moments of choice, from life inside, and their hopes for the future, the play creates a tapestry of lived experience.
Anastasis will tour More Than a Number to partner sites throughout Omaha and Lincoln featuring a cast of men affected by incarceration and professional actors. Each performance will be followed by a community conversation that centers the voices of those most impacted by the Nebraska Correctional system. Each audience will also be invited to join us at our Forum on Criminal Justice Reform on November 10th.
