The popularity of the Netflix show “Orange Is the New Black,” based on a memoir by former inmate Piper Kerman, has sparked an increase in awareness of the prison experience. The topic hits home for many in the Green Mountain State. Intersections, a theater project directed by Tara Lee Downs, aims to give voice to incarcerated Vermonters and their loved ones. Informed by inmate letters, first-person stories from the inside, and accounts from victims’ and inmates’ family members, this compilation of monologues and scenes provides a broader portrait of those affected by the criminal justice system.
