Old Globe- Reflecting Shakespeare TV - Originally created for those currently experiencing incarceration, it has proven to nurture empathy and allow participants to gain tools for self-expression through theatre-based activities, self-reflection, personal writing, and exploration of Shakespeare's text and characters. Through videos featuring Arts Engagement Programs Manager Erika Phillips, Master Teaching Artist James Pillar, and Teaching Artist Niki Martinez, those inside will continue to participate via California State Prisons' institutional TV. And for the first time since its conception in 2016, those on the outside can journey along to discover for themselves how to create a point of connection to humanity through Shakespeare. click here

Featuring Sheldon Best, Gisela Chipe, Stephen Bel Davies, Carol Halstead, Gregory Lingington, Daniel José Molina, Sam Morales, Howard Overshown, Cherie Corinne Rice and more.

If God is all-powerful, why did he allow evil to exist? Do humans have free will? Is our life predestined?
