Subject:    Shakespeare Behind Bars

Colleagues:

I know that many of you are familiar with Shakespeare Behind Bars, the 
prison program in Kentucky featured in a documentary film a few years 
ago. The program continues, and this year the men performed Macbeth. I 
had the privilege of attending this and the plays of the two previous 
years.

Here is an article about the Macbeth production:

And here is a slide show with audio comments from four of the men involved:

The audio commentary serves as a great update to the movie.
