"I could be bounded in a nutshell, and count myself king of infinite space... were it not that I have bad dreams." Hamlet eloquently distinguishes between a physical prison and the prison of the mind. The U.S. has the largest percentage of population incarcerated of any first-world nation. Where is the line between punishment and rehabilitation? Do prisoners deserve arts programs? How does Shakespeare serve as a tool for personal transformation? Societal transformation? Shakespeare in Prisons explores art, society and morality.
