About the Artist

Playwright/actor/poet Liza Jessie Peterson is a classically trained alumnus of the National Shakespeare Conservatory and has been a student of Susan Batson, coach to the stars, since 1994. Her one-woman show, The Peculiar Patriot, is a satirical, politically-charged exploration of America’s penal system. It’s also a love story told by Betsy Laquanda Ross, a self-proclaimed “Prison Industry Pin-Up” who boosts inmate morale. Liza has taught in prisons for over a decade, and has toured The Peculiar Patriot in penitentiaries across the country in over 50 performances.
