The Film

Shakespeare Behind Bars follows the members of an all-male Shakespeare company working within the bars of a Kentucky prison as they rehearse and perform The Tempest over the course of one year. Within the rigid context of prison, Shakespeare's timeless themes provide a catalyst for the inmates to examine their pasts with remarkable candor, testing the power of truth, change, and forgiveness.
