Dear Jack,

 

I know that NPR covered work with Hamlet done by the ITMSA (Independent Theatre Movement of South Africa) Shakespeare Literacy Project.  I believe that this is the only SA prison project so covered and think a Romeo and Juliet would be unlikely in any South African prison or youth detention centre.  

 

I’m working with the ITMSA on extending its work with Shakespeare in prisons. We're seeking similar projects in Africa and elsewhere, so I'll keep you posted.  In the meantime, http://theprisonartscoalition.com/ and especially prisontheatreconsortium.blogspot.com/ are good resources.  

 

Best, 

Colette Gordon
