Returned Citizens Theatre Troupe

Since 2015, Marin Shakespeare Company’s Returned Citizens Theatre Troupe has given former Shakespeare students from our prison programs 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 shares their stories with public in order to explore important issues that affect us all, and have a positive impact on our world.

Open to the Public
Saturday, June 9 at 1:00 pm
