This striking new play from Alice Birch, directed by Maria Aberg, takes a kaleidoscopic view of what happens when a woman goes to prison.

When she was little, she was so happy.
I know everyone says that. I do.

She can't stay awake.
She sold drugs.
She's good at interrogations.
She drinks in the mornings.
She ate a rabbit.
She smashed up a shop.
She stabbed a man.
She used a hammer.
She had a baby.
She can't find her mother.
She's covered in blood and doesn't know why.

A Donmar Warehouse and Clean Break co-production.

[BLANK] was first co-commissioned by Clean Break and the National Theatre.
