A Midsummer Night's Dream In Prison

Directed by: Bushra Azzouz
60 min | United States | English | 2022

Inside the locked walls of the Two Rivers Correctional Institution near Umatilla, Oregon, 18 inmates work with a visiting director to perform William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. Freed from the personas they present under lock down, they find newfound compassion for themselves and their incarcerated collaborators. ["It's almost like for three hours we weren't in prison," says Zeb.] As the play is presented, they arrive at the transformative possibility of re-imagining their life stories, past and future, both on stage and off.
