Six of the UK’s most exciting female playwrights expose the realities of a life trapped within the criminal justice system.

Bursting out of the theatre and performed in the bars, churches, restaurants and stairwells of Soho, Charged presents heartbreaking untold stories of women and the criminal justice system.  Provocative and challenging, it will be a unique theatrical event, and one of the highlights of the autumn’s theatre season.

Written for Clean Break – a theatre company working with women whose lives have been affected by the criminal justice system – Charged comprises six short new plays, published together in one volume. It follows on from the company’s recent successes, Chloë Moss’s This Wide Night (winner of the Susan Smith Blackburn Award) and It Felt Empty When The Heart Went At First But It Is Alright Now.
