THE PECULIAR PATRIOT
by Liza Jessie Peterson
THE PECULIAR PATRIOT is a multimedia solo stage play that follows Betsy LaQuanda Ross, a self-proclaimed peculiar patriot, who makes regular visits to penitentiaries boosting the morale of her incarcerated friends and family. As Betsy navigates love between barbed wire, she passionately sews a memory quilt for the urban “street soldiers and P.O.W’s” (prisoners of the war on drugs) who are serving time. But when sudden tragedy strikes, old wounds are uncorked and she’s forced to confront a hidden truth.
