Dartmouth students perform play with inmates

Posted: Updated:

UNITY, N.H. (AP) - Dartmouth College students who have spent a semester working with female inmates are showing off what they learned on stage.

As part of a course called "Telling Stories for Social Change," students teamed up with inmates to write a play they are performing Friday evening at the Sullivan County jail.

In addition to spending one afternoon a week at the jail and another afternoon on the Dartmouth campus with the inmates, the students have been conducting research on incarceration and developing proposals for new social programs.

The class has been offered through Dartmouth's Women's and Gender Studies program since 2007.
