Viv, Merle and Sandy have a delicate relationship. Viv, who is descended from Apache Indians, believes the Holy Spirit is a budgie. Merle agonises over lost motherhood. Sandy is a bohemian art teacher who has never been in prison before.
Lin Coghlan wrote Apache Tears after spending three months as a creative writing tutor in Holloway Prison. This production won the Peggy Ramsay award.
'Apache Tears is an unsentimental yet beautifully poetic response to the types of wounded psychology that can land women in jail.'
