#HealMeToo Festival Presents: Devil in a Box 


friday 3/29 AT 7PM

saturdaY 3/30 AT 3PM


Created and performed by Sarah Jane Johnson. Directed by Patrice Miller.

Equal parts poetic theater and feminist stand-up, Devil in a Box follows the journey of a young American woman from sexual assault, through the French justice system and into life after trauma. A frightening yet joyous tale, Sarah Jane chronicles the complexities of it all with disarming honesty, beaucoup d’humour, and a 24 oz. can of Miller Lite.

“defies the odds, builds community and mends broken hearts” —Asia Freeman, Artistic Director, Bunnell Street Arts Center
