Poetic Justice Project will present its interactive murder mystery, IN THE KITCHEN WITH A KNIFE, in San Luis Obispo and Santa Maria June 13 and 14. The play asks audiences to decide which of three men killed Telly, an inmate who worked in the kitchen. There are three possible endings, depending on how each audience votes.
Written by Deborah Tobola and Dylan O’Harra, and directed by Leslie Carson, IN THE KITCHEN WITH A KNIFE features poetry by Jorge Humberto Nuñez Medina. It was performed recently in Santa Cruz and on Alcatraz Island.
The only theatre company of its kind in the state, Poetic Justice Project features casts of formerly incarcerated actors in theatre that examines crime, punishment and redemption. Based in Santa Maria, Poetic Justice Project is a program of the award-winning William James Association, which provides arts instruction to people on parole and probation, prisoners, and youth at risk of incarceration. For more information, visit or find Poetic Justice Project on Facebook.
