Inspired by her decades-long work with prison populations,
including on the notorious Riker’s Island, Liza Jessie Peterson’s
timely and urgent one-person show unpacks the human impact
of mass incarceration in America. Fearlessly funny, smart and
provocative, The Peculiar Patriot traces the migration of systemic
injustice from the plantation to the prison yard. The story follows
Liza’s narrator, Betsy, a self-proclaimed “peculiar patriot,” who makes
regular visits to penitentiaries to boost the morale of her incarcerated
friends and family. Betsy is both victim and victor of this country’s
prison system and her story turns statistics into achingly relatable stories,
drawn from the experience of more than 2.5 million people behind bars.
