Therapeutic theater



UIS Theatre and ECCE Speaker Series bring this interesting and moving documentary film to Springfield Wednesday night. In Hank Rogerson’s revelatory trip into and around this prison production, we embark on a year-long journey with the Shakespeare Behind Bars theatre troupe. Prisoners cast themselves in roles reflecting their personal history and fate. Their individual stories, including information about their heinous crimes, are interwoven with the plot of The Tempest as inmates delve deeply into the characters they portray while confronting their personal demons.
