HIP HOP HAMLET
WOMEN’S EASTERN RECEPTION, DIAGNOSTIC & CORRECTIONAL CENTER (WERDCC)
BOWLING GREEN, MO-SEPTEMBER 2018
This very cool, updated hip-hop version of Hamlet, explodes upon the stage in a re-envisioned production by the actors at the Women's Eastern Reception, Diagnostic, and Correctional Center. Hip Hop Hamlet was developed originally by PPA Founder, the late Agnes Wilcox, Elizabeth Charlebois, the men at Northeast Correctional Center; and coached by the famous Q Brothers.
“Every time I see a PPA performance, the human face of the criminal justice system becomes more in focus.”
“It helps you see them as real people, instead of faceless number.”
“This performance helped me understand how much inmates can evolve and be empowered.”
