A group of inmates at San Quentin State Prison are exploring the work of The Bard with the help of the Marin Shakespeare Company. After almost a year of weekly rehearsals, they recently welcomed fellow inmates and the public to San Quentin chapel for their performance of Hamlet, that complex classic about revenge, betrayal and a young prince in existential agony. The program is part of a larger effort to use art for both rehabilitation and an escape from prison life.
