The Bedlam Festival - Playing The Game
A cast of four take you on journey through a century of maternal incarceration and ask not only has anything changed but is prison really the right place for mothers?
Obviously you're under the rules and restrictions of being in prison. So you have to play the game. You know you have to… you can't really be true to yourself.
Playing The Game is a theatre of testimony play created as part of a Wellcome Trust-funded research project with the University of Warwick. It uses material from a series of drama workshops and interviews conducted with residents and staff at HMP Peterborough alongside archival materials and testimonies from the past.
