Inmates stage play inside

William Head prisoners present Time Waits for No One

This fall, the men of William Head Prison have created a heartfelt new show inspired by the novel The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom, the author of the number one New York Times bestseller Tuesdays with Morrie.  This year the play is set in a carnival, and the men are hard at work transforming the prison gymnasium into an interactive amusement park. Sit and snack on free popcorn as you watch the play unfold.

Time Waits for No One is a heartfelt contemporary fable, centering around the character of Eddie, an everyman’s man, as he is coming to terms with what he has given and taken from people in his life, and the ripple effects created by his actions.  At the end of his life Eddie returns to the amusement park he explored as a kid, where he is drawn into a magical carousal ride that takes him back in time to revisit different stages of his life. From awkward teenage romance to alienation within his foster family and his time spent in prison, Eddie is catapulted through his life guided by the spirits of five animals: the Raven, Horse, Raccoon, Buck, and Hummingbird. Eddie’s experiences are inspired by true stories from the incarcerated men’s lives.

At the show, public audiences are processed through prison security and invited into the prison gymnasium. An inmate usher rips your ticket as you grab a bag of free popcorn and a coffee and sit down to enjoy the play, featuring an original live soundtrack written and performed by Katrina Kadoski and the inmate band.
