‘the conditions in the small confined units are such that no civilised country should tolerate’ The Mountbatten report, 1966.

‘I don’t think I’ve seen anywhere psychologically worse’ Laurie Taylor, Professor of Sociology.

The play was dedicated to Judy Ward, H-Wing, Durham Prison, Old Elvert, Durham City, England.
