Lisa DiLeo, a teacher at Middlesex County Correctional Facility, is hoping that by teaching inmates how to act they may learn how to live. For many of the inmates the acting class is cathartic. Inmates are selected for the course depending on the nature of their crime and behavioral history. Warden Edmond Cicchi says he believes this may be the first theater program at a county facility in New Jersey.
