Clean Break are Recruiting New Members

We’re recruiting new members to join our Autumn Season Programme, which begins in September!

Our Member’s Programme is available to women aged 17 and above, who have lived experience of the criminal justice system or are at risk of offending due to drug, alcohol or mental health issues.

We offer a range of programmes including; Intro to Drama, Advanced Theatre, Writers Circle and a Health and Wellbeing Group. All members will have access to our support services, travel and childcare expenses will be covered and lunch will be provided for all on the days in which you are in the Clean Break studios. Members also get exclusive opportunities including theatre trips and opportunities to take part in workshops with women who are prominent in the creative arts.

Recently our members had the opportunity to create a podcast, perform at Omnibus Theatre, work with Maria Aberg, Deborah Bruce and Sabrina Mahfouz, as well as the London College of Fashion and are currently preparing to take part in a performance at Shakespeare’s Globe.

Many Clean Break Members go on to study and work in theatre and the performing arts as performers, designers and stage managers. This year has seen four Clean Break Members take to the Royal Court stage in our most recent production Inside Bitch, and three Members are currently touring in our production of Sweatbox.

"I’ve gone from not really knowing what creativity was, to discovering my own creative process – learning things as simple as what time of day is best to write, and where I get my ideas from. Now I know I’m an incredibly creative woman, and I have the tools to access that creativity and manifest it."
