Mexico prisoners take on Shakespeare

Prisoners learn drama and challenge audience to question their assumptions about life in jail.

    Over half of Mexico's prison's are overcrowded and many are under-staffed.

    Few prisoners take part in rehabilitation programmess and nearly a third re-offend when they are released.

    Now one program, which was started by a non-profit theatre company, is trying to change that trend.
