When prison is your world, how do you function within society? This gripping, and at times chilling, one-man physical theatre performance is the story of how prison can define a man.
Developed using real life accounts of extraordinary experiences this mainly biographical story deals with the effects of institutionalisation on the psyche of an individual and the people around them.
Told through a series of characters (brought to life by the physical dynamism of Marcus Hercules), you are taken on a young boy’s journey from primary school through to adulthood.
“Sharp, funny, skilful and moving.” – The Observer
