Thank you for supporting Poetic Justice Project!


Join Poetic Justice Projects cast of formerly incarcerated actors for its newest production, CROSSING THE LINE. The multimedia play tells the story of long-time Santa Maria peace activist Dennis Apel, who was imprisoned after crossing a green line on Highway 1 at the entrance to Vandenberg Air Force Base. He was protesting the 70th anniversary of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima.

CROSSING THE LINE was created by Deborah Tobola, based on journal entries written by Dennis Apel during his four-month incarceration at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Los Angeles, and later published by the Santa Barbara Independent. The play is directed by Robyn Taylor.

The play will be performed on Sunday, May 26 at 4 p.m. at St. Peter's Episcopal Church, 402 S. Lincoln St., Santa Maria. The performance will be followed by an audience talkback. Tickets are $15 and available at the door or at Brown Paper Tickets.

Poetic Justice Project (PJP) is the first theatre company in the U.S. created for formerly incarcerated people. More than 100 actors have appeared in 18 PJP productions, which examine crime, punishment and redemption. Based in Santa Maria, the project was founded by Artistic Director Deborah Tobola in 2009. PJP is supported by funding from the Fund for Santa Barbara.

PJP is a program of the award-winning William James Association, which provides arts instruction to prisoners, people on parole and probation, and at-risk youth. For more information, visit or find Poetic Justice Project on Facebook.
