Inside Out

16 October 2002 – 16 October 2002

Teenage sisters Affy and Di look out for each other. Dying to escape their violent life, they move from dreams to betrayal - with devastating results. Inside Out, is the provocative and funny story of how the sisters fight for a better future.

Inside Out evolved after a three-month stint, running writing workshops at Winchester Women's prison.

'For such a grim story there is a surprising feel-good factor in both the play and Natasha Betteridge's exquisitely judged production, played in the round on Atlanta Duffy's set, which evokes both stolen childhoods and an alluring seaside freedom.'

Lyn Gardner - The Guardian

'Everything is stacked against Affy and Di; as much as we want their youthful idealism to win through, the suspicion lingers that the psychological baggage of their family life will be a constant albatross around their necks. And so it proves, until Gupta presents a touching moment of hope and reconciliation at the end.'

Fiona Mountford - Evening Standard

"...uncover a vital, impassioned heart with this important play, which will move even the most cynical and uncaring spectator."

Lucy Powell, Time Out

'This is powerful, compulsively watchable material that left some of last night's audience visibly stunned by its visceral impact.'
