Open Clasp Theatre Perform in Cambridge

Open Clasp Theatre Company brought an intense and thought-provoking performance to the Mumford Theatre in Cambridge. Originally devised by women in HMP Low Newton and based on their stories, the play describes the lives of four women: Kelly, Lucy, Kim and Angie. With insightful scripting and stagecraft, it poignantly captures the violence, abuse, and insecurities of their earlier lives, the temporary relief and then burden of drug use, and the indignities, anxieties, violence, humour and affection of their everyday prison lives.  A powerful 60 minutes. Well worth seeing if you get the chance.
