SHAKESPEARE INSIDE: THE?BARD BEHIND BARS?goes behind the scenes to reveal Shakespeare at work in the most decisive institutional context of our time — in prisons. The book offers a record of fiercely personal experiences, based upon the author’s experience of watching prison yard rehearsals and performances, and interviewing inmates, program directors, and wardens. We hear an ex-offender explain how playing Desdemona was vital to his rehabilitation; we sit in the audience of women inmates as they respond to the all-male Shakespeare Behind Bars touring production of JULIUS CAESAR; and we listen to a chorus of unnamed voices detail how rewriting Hamlet helps them to survive solitary confinement.?SHAKESPEARE INSIDE?probes?our assumptions?about Shakespeare and about prisoners, and provides new insight into the function of Shakespeare today.
