Two reports in this issue of PTOJ document theatre projects in non-theatre institutions. “Abbreviating Boal at the Louisiana Old State Capitol Museum: Using Image Theatre,” documents and evaluates a series of workshops with young people after they had seen an exhibit about ‘the power of children.’Theatre of the Beat’s Restorative Justice Theatre Program” evaluates a project in which incarcerated women were afforded the opportunity to explore through theatre ways to exist within the prison system that will diminish punishment and interpersonal conflict, but not necessarily raise questions about the system itself. This editorial comment raises concerns about how TO functions in institutional contexts, especially since the work may unintentionally support the goals of an institution in which it is undertaken, with reference to these two reports.
