On the eve of a significant event in 1960s America, six disparate people are thrown into a prison cell during a protest for peace. Over the course of several hours, in their interactions with one another, they discover that the world is rapidly changing, that what is immediately obvious may not be true, and that folks may not be as alike - or not alike - as they first assumed or imagined.

Tunefully told by seven singer-actors, using well-known and well-loved songs from the folk cannon of the 1960s, JT and Joni in Jail explores a significant era in the nation’s history during an unusual moment in the lives of its characters.
