Unbarred

Once you’ve been in, it’s tough to stay out of jail. That’s the hard fact that characters face in these gritty modern-day Shakespeare adaptations, which reimagine the classics with contemporary characters and settings. With diverse, relatable casts and real-world problems, these stories explore how rough family situations, gang connections, friendships, and love can all be challenges to teens out of the juvenile corrections system. Plot lines and themes closely following the original plays make the series a standout introduction to some of Shakespeare’s most famous classics.
