LIVE THEATRE: Key Change
An illuminating portrayal of life in prison
Monday 30th April – 7pm
Devised with women in HMP Low Newton, UK and originally toured to male prisons, Key Change is a raw and illuminating theatrical portrayal of women in prison. It was performed at the Houses of Parliament in 2016 to help policy makers further understand the complex journey women who come into contact with the Criminal Justice System face, and the impact of gender violence on their lives. Key Change is being performed and filmed in partnership with The Space, a digital commissioning agency supported by the BBC and Arts Council to share with a global audience.
“Key Change is notable for being neither sentimental nor in your face, yet refusing to duck the issues. In so doing it becomes a potent lesson in theatremaking for its total fusion of message with audience.”- The Stage.
13+ – Key Change has adult themes and language, including domestic violence, abuse, drug use.
Director: Laura Lindow Writer: Catrina McHugh MBE

The Death of Stalin
Monday 28th May | 7pm
In early-1953 Moscow, under the Great Terror’s heavy cloak of state paranoia, the ever-watchful Soviet leader, Joseph Stalin, collapses unexpectedly of a brain haemorrhage. Inevitably, when his body is discovered in the following morning, a frenetic surge of raw panic spreads like a virus in the senior members of the Council of Ministers, as they scramble to maintain order, weed out the competition, and, ultimately, take power. But in the middle of a gut-wrenching roller-coaster of incessant plotting, tireless machinations, and frail allegiances, absolutely no one is safe; not even the feared chief of the secret police, Lavrenti Beria. In the end, who will prevail after the death of Stalin?
“This is a frequently amazing, head-spinning, tragic farce that somehow manages to balance violent, stressful paranoia with absurd comedy. “ Michael Ordona, Common Sense Media
