Ilex Theatre presents [BLANK]Directed by Marianne O’Shea and Alex Fraser
A play about adults and children impacted by the criminal justice system.
It’s a series of 50 scenes – some of which may feel connected, others less so. It’s about what life is like when adults feel absent from it. But it can be about whatever you like – you can choose as many or as few scenes in order to construct your own narratives.
Alice Birch – Why I Wrote this Play:
‘I was interested in writing a piece of theatre that gives as much control over to companies as possible, whilst still remaining a robust piece of theatrical writing. I’m interested in the often cyclical nature of violence, of incarceration and particularly around women in prison, and children who are inevitably left behind – the unacknowledged victims of crime.’
