A documentary that takes the audience inside Sing Sing Correctional Facility, a maximum security prison, and follows a group of inmates over the course of a year as they attempt to mount a behind-bars production of A Few Good Men.

Dramatic Escape transports viewers into the lives of a group of maximum security prisoners who are attempting to mount a behind-bars stage production of A Few Good Men at Sing Sing Correctional Facility in upstate New York. Tracing the journey from auditions through curtain call, viewers witness the inmates’ development as individuals and as an ensemble. Personal stories and candid accounts of the crimes that landed them in prison are interwoven with everyday struggles and philosophical considerations of the nature of redemption.

RTA founder and executive director Katherine Vockins will lead a discussion after the screening. Free Admission, Donations Accepted. Light Refreshment Served (914) 907-4928 moviesthatmatterbeacon.org
