Marin Shakespeare Company



Marin Shakespeare Company initiated Shakespeare at San Quentin in 2003, providing weekly Shakespeare classes for incarcerated men. Since that time, the program has expanded to include multiple classes at San Quentin, classes for Level II and Level III inmates at Solano State Prison, classes at the Marin County Community School, Teacher Training Workshops, and Internship Opportunities. Our program combines Drama Therapy with Shakespeare Study and Performance, and Autobiographical Playwriting, fostering self-reflection, compassion, cooperation, self-expression, and goal-setting.  We believe that Arts in Corrections is a valuable and effective tool in encouraging rehabilitation and fostering Social Justice.
