Re-entry program teams up with South Bend Civic Theatre for play

SOUTH BEND, Ind. – Men from the South Bend Community Re-Entry Center wrote and performed in a play at South Bend Civic Theatre on September 21. The name of the play is titled “Heartless.”

The story depicts the life of a baby who is born without a heart, as well as the journeys of men who have been incarcerated and re-entered society.

The play emphasizes the experiences and struggles of being incarcerated.

The director of the play, Terry Farren, said, “The dedication and open hearts to this project have been a life changing experience for me. I am forever grateful to Antrone Crockett for sharing his short story and trusting my guidance to "breathe life" into our one act play. I am truly honored to be a part of the development team and privileged to direct a 'must hear' story.”

Warden of the Re-Entry Center Charles Bowen also provided a statement, saying, “This has been a very powerful and moving experience. To see the men from the re-entry center create, write, and perform this play in the community, is a proud moment for all. The whole team is proud of these men and the dedication they have shown to the community throughout the process.”
