The play is organized by the Marin Shakespeare Company. The company began the program in San Quentin in 2003.
About 15 inmates have been practicing their lines for months and they’ll take the stage on Saturday. Aside from inmates, some of their family members are invited to watch.
The inmates learn skills such as teamwork and nonviolent communication, and grants help cover the program.
