The Fortune Society's "The System Is Down"



Theatre of the Oppressed NYC and The Fortune Society present 
The System is Down 

Player 2 has finally completed his parole, and he's feeling great: he's even got a job interview lined up. But the system knocks him down a few levels, despite his best efforts to follow the rules… In a system intentionally designed to oppress people of color, immigrants, and the poor, how can we level up? 

A forum theatre play created and performed by members of The Fortune Society community. 

The Fortune Society’s mission is to support successful reentry from incarceration and promote alternatives to incarceration, thus strengthening the fabric of our communities. They believe in the power of people to change, and help individuals with justice involvement rebuild their lives through innovative services and advocacy.
