'You might think there aren’t many laughs to be had in a play about women in secure hospitals, at least not without trivialising a serious subject. But you’d be wrong. Clean Break theatre company’s production Didn’t Die is both entertaining and educative. Through the stories of two former patients and an ex-psychiatric nurse, now retrained as a midwife, we learn how ‘bad childhoods make mad people’, and come to understand how the system can damage staff as well as service users. We also enjoy some very funny scenes in which the women go shopping, joke, argue and ultimately support each other.'
