11/29 Getting Out
This Tuesday, NOVEMBER 29th, we will be reading GETTING OUT by Marsha Norman.
Released from prison Arlene returns to a rundown apartment in Louisville, intent on starting he life over, Rebellious and disruptive as a young girl, she has found her strength in religion and wants to put her youth (as Arlie) behind her. But her struggle to find her way in the present is counterpointed by flashbacks of her past. We meet guards and prison officials with whom Arlie waged a running battle, and the unfeeling slatternly mother, the lecherous former prison guard, the pimp ex-boyfriend, and the touchingly friendly neighbor with whom Arlene in confronted in the present. This play conveys the struggle of someone fighting for her life against incredible odds.
