I have had the privilege of being interviewed on the Northeast Indiana Public Radio about Shakespeare Behind Bars, the program many of you will recall from the 2005 documentary Shakespeare Behind Bars. Shakespeare Behind Bars continues apace with the inmates at the Luther Luckett Correctional Complex working towards their 2012 production of Romeo and Juliet. Shakespeare Behind Bars also works young people in the juvenile justice system in Louisville, Kentucky, and SBB's founder Curt Tofteland has started a SBB program at the Ernest C. Brooks Correctional Complex in Michigan and has recently assisted the beginning of a Shakespeare program in a prison in Australia (while on a Fulbright Fellowship). My involvement is as an enthusiastic volunteer and promoter.


The radio interview includes the story of the man rehearsing to play Juliet. Enjoy:
