Lock Down: a play by Journeymen Theatre
March 5, 7:30 pm - 8:30 pmFree
A play by Journeymen Theatre, commissioned by Positive Justice Gloucestershire.
It tells the story of Ron and Kathy. Ron is an elderly lifer and Kathy a newly appointed Quaker prison chaplain. It’s a strange bond they develop but important to both of them. Through the prism of life inside, Kathy is forced to go on a journey of discovery and Ron is her guide.
Lock Down explores the hidden plight of the elderly and infirm inside UK’s jails and asks some big questions about how the system is coping with this ever-increasing problem. As Ron is fond of saying, ‘There is no system. That is the system.’
This will be Journeymen Theatre’s fourth visit to Stroud. The last was ‘Rock and Hard Place’, dealing with domestic violence, commissioned by Gloucestershire Quakers.
Admission free, collection. All welcome.
