A short play and workshop about women struggling to make ends meet performed by women affected by the criminal justice system
You haven’t got any money and you owe, you always owe. The door’s knocking and the letters are building so you dodge Peter to pay Paul and you find your ways of getting through the day. Everyday.
Spent follows the story of three women trying to make ends meet and living in a world of easy credit and dangerous debt.
