In 2015, Marin Shakespeare Company launched a theatre group for Returned Citizens (also known as formerly incarcerated). The intention of the group is to give former Shakespeare students from our prison program the opportunity to continue their study of theatre and acting, to form a support group, and to tell stories of importance through theatre.
Under the leadership of Suraya Keating, Marin Shakespeare Company’s Shakespeare for Social Justice Director, the group’s first performance is a collection of autobiographical stories entitled:
“Nobody Told Us We Were Diamonds: The Story of How I Found Me”
