“The fact that I’m a white person may mean that I’d survive a prison riot more easily, and that’s a horrifying thought,” says Orange is The New Black star Taylor Schilling.

“People are dying in riots in the States – the Ferguson unrest wasn’t that long ago. I don’t know how one survives a riot. I don’t think there is a recipe for it. I think it’s a systemic problem, the system that caused the riots needs to change.” 

Season 5 of Orange is The New Black plays out over three days as the inmates at Litchfield riot. The episodes were filmed whilst last years’ US Presidential election was taking place. Schilling says that daily on the set, the actors would discuss the election campaign.

“It’s impossible to strip the show from the context in which it’s being created,” Schilling says.  “The world at large is part of what we are making on a day to day basis.”

Plot Summary for ‘the public’

Here’s the first plot summary for Taylor Schilling’s new project ‘the public’


From imdb

In “the public” an unusually bitter Arctic blast has made it’s way to downtown Cincinnati and the front doors of the public library where the action of the film takes place. The story revolves around the library patrons, many of whom are homeless, mentally ill and marginalized, as well as an exhausted and overwhelmed staff of librarians who often build emotional connections and a sense of obligation to care for those regular patrons. At odds with library officials over how to handle the extreme weather event, the Patrons turn the building into a homeless shelter for the night by staging an “Occupy” sit in. What begins as an act of civil disobedience becomes a stand off with police and a rush-to-judgment media constantly speculating about what’s really happening. This David versus Goliath story tackles some of our nation’s most challenging issues, homelessness and mental illness and sets the drama inside one of the last bastions of democracy-in-action: your public library.
