From role-plays with street gangs in the USA to Beckett in Brixton; from opera productions with sex offenders to psychodrama with psychopaths, the book will discuss, analyse and reflect on theoretical notions and practical applications of theatre for and with the incarcerated.

Theatre in Prison is a collection of thirteen international essays exploring the rich diversity of innovative drama works in prisons. The book includes an introduction that will present a contextualisation of the prison theatre field. Thereafter, leading practitioners and academics will explore key aspects of practice &endash; problemitising, theorising and describing specific approaches to working with offenders. The book also includes extracts from prison plays, poetry and prisoners writings that offer illustrations and insights into the experience of prison life. 'Theatre in Prison: Theory and Practice offers an extensive range of practical and theoretical examples so that arts practitioners, prison workers and academics working in fields such as criminology, rehabilitation and community arts will find essays of interest and importance specific to their areas of expertise.' (Heather Anderson, Arts, Media and Culture, Griffith University)
