The program will be presented at 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 24, at church, 5603 Bull Valley Road in McHenry.

"A Day at Statesville" is a play illustrating a newcomer's first day as an inmate at the Statesville Correctional Facility developed by inmates who are currently facing life sentences without the possibility of parole.

"This play's objective is to inspire community leaders to take action to decrease the increasing number of youths entering the prisons and to advocate the improvement of prisons' current conditions," said Jail Brakers Executive Director Cheryl Niemo.

A musical performance by The Siblings will precede the play.

A $10 donation is requested to defray the expenses of the program.
