Featured in The New York Times, The Washington Post, and the Atlantic, Outside the Wire is a social impact company that uses theater to address pressing public health and social issues. The company travels around the world, presenting dramatic readings of powerful literary works and empowering communities to respond to issues raised in facilitated discussions. Professional actors have appeared on Broadway, in Portland Stage Company productions, an din films and TV shows such as The Talented Mr. Ripley, The Namesake and Law and Order.
The Maine Humanities Council has commissioned Outside the Wire to structure a performance and discussion around the issue of domestic violence. Partners from domestic violence prevention agencies from across Maine have been integral in its development. Representatives from these agencies will attend each performance to answer questions and distribute resources.
