A new play by Lynn Clay Byrne, directed by Benjamin Viertel, will begin performances on March 23 in advance of its opening night on March 31 and will initially run through April 25 at HERE Arts Center (145 Sixth Avenue).

Inspired by true events and set within the confines of the jailhouse visit room, emotionally charged meetings between inmates and visitors expose the reality of our American jail system. We observe how the impact of incarceration diminishes any chance of success for inmates who have served their time. Between The Bars follows five inmates and their loved ones, bringing to light critical systemic failures and questioning who belongs on which side of the bars.

HERE Arts Center is located at 145 Sixth Avenue.

Tickets are $44.50 – $59.50, and can be purchased by visiting

Performances schedule is Monday – Friday at 7 PM; Saturday at 2 PM & 7 PM.

Venue: HERE Arts Center
