- et al.
Shakespeare’s themes of murder and mayhem resonate with prisoners, certainly, but so do his language, his humanity and his humor. I have seen at least a dozen productions of Macbeth in my life, reviewed most of them, and directed the play at both Utah’s and Colorado’s Shakespeare festivals. But I have never seen any performance of the Scottish Play as thrilling as the one mounted and performed inside California’s San Quentin Prison in late May.
