On Thursday, December 9, Jonathan Shailor gave a talk on Performing New Lives: Prison Theatre to a gathering of 10 brave souls who made their way through the snow to the Olympia Brown Unitarian Universalist Church in Racine, Wisconsin. The event was sponsored by the Racine Coalition for Peace and Justice.
Some comments from the participants:
Providing a group of prisoners with sanctuary provides them with that magic circle of the theatre. It's a safe place to read, learn, perform and be part of a trusting group.
~ Andy McLean, Shakespeare scholar and Professor Emeritus of English, University of Wisconsin-Parkside, participant in The Shakespeare Prison Project of Wisconsin
Richness of acting, and pulling from their own tragedies, made the plays more poignant.
~ Kay Gregor, Executive Director, Racine Literacy Council; participant in The Shakespeare Prison Project of Wisconsin
I cheer you on! Wonderful! It is an experience of transformation for all involved, including the family and friends of the prisoners!
