Tracy doesn’t like the unpredictable coz it can unsettle but her eye is bleeding and she’s behind with the hostel’s rent.

Tomorrow Julie leaves the prison. She will have to walk past the pub, smell the laughter and taste the songs as they spill out of the doors and windows.  She’ll want to drink, do drugs but she won’t; this is her last time.

Annie is late, her sandal is broken, the strap flapping loose and no-one is stopping to ask her why.

These stories are three and at the same time one. Sugar exposes the routes into prison, life behind bars and the revolving door that catapults women back.

Devised with women in HMP Low Newton, Women's Direct Access Homelessness Service and women on probation attending a Women’s Hub at West End Women & Girls Centre.
