Elizabeth’s work has been published in The Huffington Post, In These Times, the Juvenile Justice Information Exchange, and The Washington Blade. She published her first book with The New Press, 10 Excellent Reasons Not to Join the Military. She is the author of the documentary play about people sentenced to life for crimes committed as children, Life, Death, and Life Again: Children Sentenced to Die in Prison.
The United States is the only country in the world that sentences children to die in prison. Life, Death, Life Again: Children Sentenced to Die In Prison, by Elizabeth Weill-Greenberg, shares the stories of four people directly impacted by this policy – those who were sentenced to die in prison for crimes committed as children, and a man who saved the life of the youth who took his grandmother’s life. Each performance will be followed by a facilitated discussion of the themes discussed — radical forgiveness, redemption, and how we can create a more humane criminal justice system.
Performances are scheduled for:
Thursday, 4/12, 7-10 pm at Reformed Church of Highland Park, located at 19 South Second Avenue, Highland Park, NJ
Sunday, 4/15, 2-5pm at Zimmerli Art Museum of New Brunswick, located at 71 Hamilton Street, New Brunswick, NJ
The play is being produced by coLAB Arts and is underwritten with a grant from the New Jersey Council on the Humanities.
