Conspire Theatre says
Any One Of Us is a play written by more than 50 incarcerated or formerly incarcerated women in the U.S. The piece reveals the connection between women in prison, and the violence that often brings them there with honesty and sincerity. Eve Ensler weaves their fierce words into a powerful and change-inspiring performance.

This production benefits Conspire Theatre & Empower Art.

"You cannot walk in my life,

Cause you haven't been stabbed in the arm three times

with a knife.

You cannot say you're just like me,

Cause you didn't test positive, HIV.

You cannot say you feel my pain.

Because, you ain't never hold up in the rain.

You cannot do what I did

'cause, I did four years in the pen.

You cannot have my glory.

'cause, mine has been one hell of a story.

You cannot live my dream.

'cause, you ain't been beat by your own damn momma

You cannot say I'm gonna live long,

Do you really think I'm that damn strong?

You cannot live my life."

This project is funded and supported in part by the City of Austin through the Economic Growth & Redevelopment Services Office/Cultural Arts Division believing an investment in the Arts is an investment in Austin’s future. Visit Austin at NowPlayingAustin.com.
