“Shakespeare Behind Bars,” Post Screening Talk Back

On January 10, 2016, The Oregon Humanities Center screened the award-winning documentary film, Shakespeare Behind Bars (Philomath Films, 2005), which chronicles the 2003 production of The Tempest at the Luther Luckett Correctional Facility in Kentucky, where Curt Tofteland began the SBB program in 1995 and continued to work until 2008. Following the screening, there was a talk-back with three UO faculty who have been involved with prison-based arts and literature programs: Shaul Cohen (Geography) and Steven Shankman (English), who teach for the UO’s Inside-Out program; and Lara Bovilsky (English), a Shakespeare scholar who has attended performances of Shakespeare by inmate-actors at correctional facilities in rural Missouri and Illinois.
