First Sentence
When it was time to cast for my play, I was faced with a choice: I could have gone out and recruited either from the prison's brightest or from its less literate mainstream. Read the first page

essential reading 28 Mar. 2013
By Penelope - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This collection of essays edited by James Thompson, although published in 1998, is still very relevant to the development of the field of theatre in prisons. It presents the essential paradigm of this work in the Introduction to the collection, the contradictions and questions that arise from playing out theatre's human expression within the de-humanised performance of punishment. Following are essays that document diverse prison theatre experiences. The collection includes the voices of prisoner participants, as well as including an afterword on the evaluation of the practice. The essays are limited to mainly UK and US experience, with some reference to work done by UK practitioner, Paul Heritage in Brazil. Nevertheless, an important first collection of essays, still pertinent and questioning today.
