Conspire Theatre is a sponsored project of the Austin Circle of Theaters, a 501(c)3 nonprofit. Our first project was a five week theatre workshop in Travis County Correctional Facility (Del Valle, Texas) with women inmates. We played games, created scenes, wrote poems and monologues, and ended the project with a performance for other inmates and staff. Katherine Craft and Meg Brooker were the co-facilitators. Katherine Craft was so inspired by the project that she founded Conspire Theatre and will continue to work with incarcerated and marginalized women, both at Travis County Correctional Facility and elsewhere.These gals are clearly passionate about the project, and their home page is essentially a blog by the founders following the project's work.
