“Excellent script, funny and touching, dramatic and dynamic at its core.” Paul Bourne, Artistic Director, Menagerie Theatre.
A script in hand reading of a new play by Danusia Iwaszko (The Wisdom Club, A Labour of Love, Between the Cracks, The More Things Change, Refuge, Tough Love).
Prisoners. Should we lock them up and throw away the key? Danusia has run script-writing groups in male prisons for the last 15 years and in Penned Up, she shares her experience. The prisoners usually join the group to get out of their cells for a couple of hours, but as they do, they break other chains that bind them.
