The Stretch

by Joe Ainsworth

Directed by Simon Naylor

 

Following it's success in JB Shorts 19, 'The Stretch' has been extended from a 15 minute piece to a one hour show, set to launch in the arches in March.

 

Follow Lee in this powerful and poingnant piece as he finds his way through a ten year stretch inside, after just one terrible mistake. Experience the highs, and definitely the lows and witness just how it affects him and those nearest to him. A play that discusses an all too current issue; institutions and the support given to those incarcerated and those trying to rehabilitate and reinstate themselves into society.

 

Written with support from the pastoral team at HMP Forest Bank and based on true experiences, this extended version is set to be even more powerful than the first.
