Britain's Open Clasp Theatre Company presents this award-winning piece of theatre devised by actual female prisoners about their lives in a raw and illuminating portrait. More…
Open Clasp were originally commissioned by Dilly Arts, an arts development company specialising in working with people in prison, to work with women in HMPYOI Low Newton as part of a larger project working with male and female offenders. Open Clasp worked with the women to enable them to tell their stories, and devise and rehearse a new piece of theatre. 'Key Change' is the result of those collaborations.
