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 will offer an open dress rehearsal of their 2017 performance June 2 and 3 in San Rafael:
“Changes: Stories of Struggle, Hope & Growth”
Open to the Public
Friday, June 2 at 7:30 pm
Saturday, June 3 at 7:30 pm
514 Fourth Street, San Rafael
You are welcome to make a donation at the door. Space is limited; to reserve your space, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the date you’d like to attend and number of reservations. Reservations will be honored up to 7:25 pm each evening.
