Devised with women in Her Majesty's Prison Low Newton to tour to male prisons, Key Change carries the stories of some of the UK’s most marginalised women over the razor wire through an intense, raw and illuminating portrayal of women in prison.

The prison van, fences high, a Magpie.  One for sorrow.  Snatched the babies. The mother fought, but it was too big, and flew too high.

Winner of the Carol Tambor Best of Edinburgh Award 2015
