On 12 March the performance will be followed by a ‘long table’ discussion. A ‘long table’ differs from a post show panel in that it is a democratic conversation – the audience are invited to take part in an open discussion to explore further the themes and subject matter raised by Inside Bitch. We’re pleased to welcome from Queen Mary University of London, Dr Caoimhe McAvinchey, an expert on Applied Theatre and in particular the testimony and documentation of theatre with women in prison, as host. This event will be audio recorded.

Inside Bitch

27 February 2019 – 23 March 2019

Conceived by Stacey Gregg and Deborah Pearson

Devised by Lucy Edkins, Jennifer Joseph, Terri Ann Oudjar and Jade Small

“You’ve seen Orange is the New Black. You’ve seen Locked Up. You’ve seen Bad Girls.  So, what have we got that’s different? Well, for one, we’ve been to prison.”

Created by women who aren’t guessing, Inside Bitch is a devised ensemble performance from Clean Break’s Members, a playful subversion of the representation of women in prison and how things aren’t quite as seen on TV.

"We’ve got the real shit, and trust me, it’s dark as fuck, and it will knock your socks off!

Clean Break and the Royal Court previously collaborated on 2014’s Pests.
