Prison Dramas

Great to see the broadsheets beginning to pick up on the dangers of the public acceptability test which I blogged about last week.

Yesterday's Independent published this article, drawing attention to the new directive.

...and this was followed up by Libby Purves in today's edition of The Times, which articulates brilliantly the rehabilitative journey.

I'm delighted that support for the brilliant work that goes on in Prison arts has been galvanised and a counter attack against reactionary measure has been launched.

Elsewhere, the St.Mary's production of Yard Gal (a play initially commissioned by Clean Break to play to Prison audiences) continues to roll with news that's it's picked up Fringe Production of the Year from Fringe Report. The award ceremony is in Leicester Square in early February. Once again it demonstrates that we really do support some excellent theatrical as well as community focused work. Congratulations Stef!
