Almost 40% of Women Released from Prison in Queensland
Will Reoffend and Return to Incarceration Within Two Years.
Why do You need to see This Play?
THIS WIDE NIGHT Women’s Prison Project has opened a conversation between Women Inside and Released from Prison and the Wider Community to See the Story behind the Statistics and to help them make the best choices on release from Prison to not return.
Written in a UK Women’s Prison…THIS WIDE NIGHT:
“explores the importance and uniqueness of relationships formed in prison:
how they can, or perhaps cannot exist in another context and resettlement
where ‘freedom’ can actually feel like a very bleak and frightening concept.”
Premiered in 2008 by Clean Break at Soho Theatre before a National Tour of Theatres and Women’s Prisons.
Workshopped with Women in a Brisbane Correctional Centre…
As part of the rehearsal process A MOVEABLE THEATRE conducted two ninety minute Workshop Performances of a pivotal scene from the play followed by a Facilitated discussion with Women Serving Sentences at HELANA JONES CORRECTIONAL CENTRE.
Performed to Support Workers of Women Recently Released.
A MOVEABLE THEATRE then took what they learned from the Women and performed to Support Workers of SerO4’s MARA PROJECT and other SE-QLD Re-Entry Programs.
Both Groups resoundingly endorsed this Play and this Production as a
REAL representation of Women struggling to re-join the Wider Community.
