This is a class by the Playwrights Project, at Centinela State Prison. Masks were required indoors during class, but we were able to step outside and briefly unmask for individual portraits.

Instructors this day were Cecelia Kouma, Moe Reynoso and Carlos Vasquez. Playwrights Project’s Out of the Yard program is conducted in collaboration with the William James Association.

The class is part of Arts in Corrections (, which is funded by California's Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation and administered by the California Arts Council.
