About us

a production photo from more than we can bear at the Almeida theatre, the cast are taking their bows on stage
Clean Break changes lives and changes minds through theatre – on stage, in prison and in the community. We produce ground-breaking plays with women’s voices at the heart of our work and use theatre to transform the lives of women with experience of the criminal justice system or at risk of entering it.

Our History

Clean Break Theatre Company with the Mayor of Camden outside HMP Holloway, 1986
Clean Break was established by two women in prison in 1979, at HMP Askham Grange, who believed that theatre could bring the hidden stories of women who are criminalised to a wider audience. Explore Clean Break’s radical and unique story in our interactive digital archive.
