What do women in prison say to a captured audience of men?

Devised with women in Her Majesty’s Prison Low Newton to tour to male prisons, Key Change carries the stories of some of the UK’s most marginalised women over the razor wire through an intense, raw and illuminating portrayal of women in prison.

The prison van, fences high, a Magpie. One for sorrow. Snatched the babies. The mother fought, but it was too big, and flew too high.

“A touching, empowering work that hits the hat-trick of great script, direction and performance” ★★★★★The Stage

“Exquisite… singing with an everyday poetry as if the devising process had unlocked a waterfall of creativity” ★★★★ The Guardian

“A tale told with kinetic honesty and tightly controlled tenderness” ★★★★ The Scotsman
