Woman's Hour, Houses of Parliament and National Tour
And then to our performance at the Houses of Parliament this afternoon, hosted by the the National Criminal Justice Arts Alliance, Clinks, Prison Reform Trust and Agenda (Alliance for Women and Girls at Risk) aimed to inform, move and inspire parliamentarians, senior policy-makers and decision-makers who need to understand the complex lives of women who come into contact with the criminal justice system.
Get your tickets for Key Change on National Tour until 10th December now - here is some of the feedback from last night's audience:
“Amazing! I felt furious (for the women) and also laughed so much. I’m not a big ‘theatre’ fan but I felt completely inside the play. Amazing acting and such an insight into something I have no experience of. Thanks for writing it”

★★★★★ "A touching, empowering work that hits the hat-trick of great script, direction and performance"
"Open Clasp is truly a treasure of the north east that must be supported and encouraged to become a treasure of the nation"
"Open Clasp have the balls, the brains and above all, the sense of humour, to tackle issues in a fresh and beguiling way"
