NEWS Fall / Winter 2019
It has been an honor to co-lead this Reading, Reflection, Performance, and Rehabilitation program for The Old Globe at California State Prison, Centinela. The participants of our current round of classes are soon to present their Reflections on The Winter's Tale and Macbeth.
KPBS covered The Old Globe's Globe For All production of A Midsummer Night's Dream at Centinela, where we hold 3 classes of Reflecting Shakespeare on separate yards.
American Theatre Magazine published "A Role For Theatre in Criminal Justice?" in its February 2019 issue, including the Shakespeare in Prisons Conference held at The Old Globe in 2018. The Article features my wonderful bosses, Old Globe leadership: Barry Edelstein and Freedome Bradley-Ballentine. I was fortunate to serve on a panel of Female Practitioners at the conference.
