On Our Shelves Now
Commissioned by the women's prison theatre group Clean Break, some of the most exciting voices in theatre explore the pressures on our public services as one young woman buckles under pressures of her own. Five characters share a common thread: Joanne. But it's not about her. It's about Stella, Grace, Alice, Kath, and Becky -- but what about Joanne?
About the Author
CLEAN BREAK was set up in 1979 by two women prisoners who believed that theatre could bring the hidden stories of imprisoned women to a wider audience. Still the only women's theatre company of its kind today, Clean Break continues to inspire playwrights around the complex theme of women and crime - enlightening and entertaining audiences. Integral to this, is the company's long-established theatre-based education and training programme enabling women offenders and those at risk of offending to develop personal, social, professional and creative skills leading to education and employment.
