inmate Rontrell Wise portraying the angel Gabriel – convicted of murder and serving a life sentence

I recently listened to this fantastic report from NPR, “On This Stage, Jesus Is A Robber; The Devil’s A Rapist

The story follows the Angola Prison Drama Club at Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola and is a fantastic glimpse into a unique thing taking place there.

70 inmates are participating in a dramatization titled, “The Life of Jesus Christ”.

If you have 10-minutes, this story is well-worth your time.

The audio-version of the story (accessible at the same link here) is incredible.

If you take a minute (ten, actually) to read/listen to the NPR story, I would LOVE to hear your comments here on the blog!
