Prison Wings - St Saviour's Church
Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle
INTERMISSION Theatre is presenting Prison Wings at St Saviour’s Church. Written by Darren Raymond and directed by Craig Blake, it runs from May 29 to June 14, 2014.
This cell ain’t big enough for the two of us.
Prison Wings tells the story of Ryder, a young man from London who finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time and as a result is sentenced to 18 years in prison.
Most of Ryder’s time is spent in isolation due to his refusal to share a cell. However, the prison becomes seriously overcrowded and the officers in charge have no choice but to force a fellow inmate upon him. The consequences – a strange and remarkable turn of events.
One of Intermission Youth Theatre’s graduates, Eddie Thompson, will be performing alongside the company’s Artistic Director, Darren Raymond.
Prison Wings is described by inmates from Brixton Prison as “Drop dead funny and informative”.
Intermission Theatre is now in its ninth year, and continues to be a shining beacon for new and emerging talent.
Tickets: £15 (concessions available). To book, call the box office on 020 7581 4620 or visit www.intermissiontheatre.co.uk/.
