A Body in Motion is a play that was prisoner requested in the State Correctional Institution at Graterford, one of Pennsylvania’s largest prisons. Prisoners familiar with Howard Zehr’s book, Transcending: Reflections of Crime Victims, asked the Pennsylvania Prison Society and its Restorative Justice Program to bring the play to their prison. This expanded to a tour of eight state prisons and seven community-based sites in April and May 2004. Through project goals, partnership and process, and audience care, the tour offered a new application of these restorative elements. This article focuses primarily on the prison aspects of the play tour.
