A tender portrayal of two women trying to start again after their release from prison.

Susan Smith Blackburn Prize 2009

On her release from prison, Lorraine heads straight to Marie's. On the inside they used to share everything, but the friendship that once protected them now threatens to smother the fragile freedom they have found.

This Wide Night was premiered by Clean Break, a theatre, education and new writing company, working with women whose lives have been affected by the criminal justice system.
