This workshop at Kern Valley State Prison was conducted by the Actors' Gang. The audience for this workshop/performance included family members of the performers and institutional staff. The guests were invited to join the workshop; as you can see, some did!

Instructors on this day were Hannah Chodos, Pierre Adeli, Edgar Rodriguez, and Stephan Smith.

The class is part of Arts in Corrections (, which is funded by California's Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation and administered by the California Arts Council.
