Default Inmates make a play for redemption


Inmates make a play for redemption

By Pat Berman

The Camille Griffin Graham Correctional Institution in Columbia is about as off-Broadway as you can get. Yet there they were — about 30 female inmates in dress rehearsal in the middle of the gym with a pair of droning, industrial-sized fans stirring the hot, soupy air.
The crew worked mostly with office chairs and tables, potted plants and cardboard boxes to fashion sets, including a kitchen, living room and cemetery. A sagging volleyball net served as a temporary scrim until a backdrop was built. Dress was standard-issue tan S.C. Department of Corrections uniforms.
This was art therapy — another way besides traditional talk therapy to grasp, and thus get a handle on, what caused the inmates to wind up here.
