Jonathan GillmanJonathan is the director of Looking In Theatre, a “teen interactive social issue” theater group; it was the recipient of the 2017 Katharine Hepburn Award from the Connecticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities for “Using the Arts as a Platform for Social Change.” He was the long-term head of the theater department at the Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts, a public magnet high school. Other recent books include: Looking In, creative non-fiction which follows ten actors through a year of their participation in Looking In Theatre, as their issues intertwine and overlap with those of their audiences; and Captivity, a novel about a woman in the Massachusetts colony who is captured by natives, spends ten months with them, is re-captured—and has to decide which is the true “captivity” and where she belongs.
