Shakespeare Behind Bars Trip

April 9, 2018 General Comments Off on Shakespeare Behind Bars Trip Posted By: Jack Heller

I am arranging for a group to attend the Shakespeare Behind Bars (SBB) performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. SBB is a group of incarcerated men in Kentucky who rehearse and perform a Shakespeare play every year; they have been the inspiration for the Shakespeare @ Pendleton program. This trip will occur on Thursday, May 10. Everyone who wishes to attend must complete and pass the prison’s (Luther Luckett Correctional Complex) criminal background check. The cost for taking the trip is $10 for van rental and your purchases at a Starbucks and at a fast food restaurant. This is a long trip: we would leave Huntington at noon and return as late as 2 a.m. If you are interested in attending, though, this will be an experience you will never forget. Let me know by Monday, April 9: jheller@huntington.edu
