“I have seen the evolution of Regina Walters as both an actor and writer in the NC Women's Prison Writing and Performance Project's productions Doing More Than Time and From The Inside Out. Now the subject of Rewind, her own compelling story, Regina has collaborated with Hidden Voices to create the kind of theatre that must be shared with as broad an audience as possible. Why? Because of its message of redemption fused in the terrifying leap into self-awareness and of grappling with the consequences of our life choices. All of us can learn from Rewind what it takes to turn a life around, learn more about compassion, and be inspired.”
