Melvin D. L. Price, Jr. (Out to Lunch monologue) is delighted to share his writing outside the walls of Richard J. Donovan Correctional Facility. Melvin is the guitar player for Protestant Services, Praise and Worship Leader, and a proud playwright in Playwrights Project’s Out of the Yard program, where he wrote the monologue presented. Melvin grew up in a gang-infested neighborhood that did not nurture individuality. He is thankful to have attended an arts middle school that provided an escape and allowed him to express himself through music and writing. He is grateful to the CDCR for bringing programs that have helped him grow up and enabled him to share his wisdom and advice with his own son. He looks forward to a triumphant return to the community.
