Description

The latest in a series of site-specific plays inspired by the history of Newham in east London. In Elizabeth Fry: The Angel of Prisons, three prisoners have a story to tell. It’s the story of Elizabeth Fry and how she changed prisons forever. But this is not a history lesson. You’ll hear both contemporary and historical language. You’ll see both modern-day and period mash-up costumes. Because the question remains the same today as it did in Elizabeth Fry’s time: does prison actually work?
