In May 2012, seventy-five inmates at Angola Prison and Louisiana Correctional Institution for Women came together to put on the performance of their lives. Over the course of three days, before an audience of a thousand free people, these inmate actors performed the Passion of Christ in perhaps the largest theatrical event ever staged in a prison. The actors, whose own experience mimics the characters they play, help us experience these biblical characters in ways rarely felt before. Leading the effort is prisoner Gary Tyler who, at age 16 in 1974, was the youngest person in America on death row. With 40 years behind bars, four on death row and six more in solitary, his wisdom guides the ship and assures its success.
