“Ain’t No Orange in Texas: The Variety Show is a revealing, bizarre, humorous and enlightening portrayal of women’s incarcerated experience, performed by system-impacted women. Hosted by Officer Cheatham, the show will feature short performances or variety acts with live musical/sound accompaniment, and could include: spoken word, poetry, song, dance, talent, sketches/comedy acts, prison cooking, how-to demos, puppet show, video or a short lecture. This performance series aims to challenge the criminal justice systems’ entrenched culture of indifference and dehumanization, empower system-impacted women, and engage public interest and empathy by making the incarcerated experience accessible – especially to those who have no experience with the criminal justice system or the people affected by it.
This project was developed in collaboration with system-impacted women with support from the Right of Return USA Fellowship, Open Philanthropy Project and the Soze Agency; with additional support provided by the Texas Criminal Justice Coalition. “
