CAGES brings to the stage the story an angry and disillusioned psychologist, Dr. Thomas Morri. Given a last chance to redeem himself, Dr. Morri reports to the Administrative Segregation unit where he is assigned to facilitate a therapy group for five mentally ill inmates, each locked in a cage the size of a phone booth.  His interactions with the inmates give rise to unforeseen personal and professional consequences that will change his life.  This poignant exploration of mental illness inside a California state prison  was written by playwright Leonard Manzella's experiences providing mental health treatment to inmates in  a California prison.

Performances: Thursdays*, Fridays, and Saturdays at 8:00 PM and Sunday Matinees at 4:00 PM

*Please note that Thursday performances beginning June 14, 2012 will feature an alternate cast.
