Now you can hear the prisoners' perspective in a new play devised by feminist theatre comany Clean Break Theatre. Inside Bitch, which premieres Royal Court's Jerwood Theatre Upstairs from February 2019, was conceived by Stacey Gregg and Deborah Pearson and devised by Lucy Edkins, Jennifer Joseph, TerriAnn Oudjar and Jade Small.
Established by two women prisoners in 1971, Clean Break works within prisons and with ex-convicts to create theatre that brings the unseen stories of imprisoned women to new and broader audiences.
This new show was developed and devised by Clean Break members and will be performed by an ensemble cast. Subverting the stereotypes and exploding the cliches, it gives a platform for women who have been inside - and they don't mince their words.
'We’ve got the real shit, and trust me, it’s dark as fuck, and it will knock your socks off!' Buckle up for a wild ride, and book promptly; the tiny Jerwood Upstairs Theatre is tiny and likely to sell out.
Tickets for Inside Bitch at the Royal Court go on sale at noon on Tuesday 30 October
