Prison Theatre

Practices and Perspectives

Prison Theatre describes the rich variety of programmes of theatre with offenders. This multi-disciplinary volume informs debates both in the criminal justice system and in discussion about the role and function of theatre. The contributors explore a wide range of topics within this diverse field, including:
- working with women prisoners and with people with learning difficulties
- dramatherapy with violent offenders
- prison theatre work in Brazil
- theatre work with young offenders
- dramatic intervention in probation services and with ex-offenders.

This is a stimulating and thought-provoking book which will provide valuable reading for practitioners, professionals and students across the fields of the arts therapies, criminology and criminal justice, psychology and performing arts.
