July 2017: Pilot Program

SIP's pilot program at Parnall Correctional Facility took place over two weeks in July 2017. The ensemble, calling themselves "Shakespeare Unchained," explored Macbeth and devised an original performance piece, which was enthusiastically received by a large audience of inmates.

The pilot was led by Assistant Director Kyle Grant. Read his reflections here.

Support was provided by Director Frannie Shepherd-Bates. Read her reflections here.

Following the success of July's program, we returned in October 2017 for a 10-week workshop. We'll update this blog every two weeks or so!
