Our friends at Open Clasp Theatre Company have put together a must-see show. After being awarded the Carol Tambor ‘Best of Edinburgh’ Award 2015 overseas, their play Key Change, which was originally created with female prisoners in the UK to be toured to male prisoners, has now landed in the East Village. The Guardian gave the production 4-stars calling it ”Exquisite”, while The Stage called it ”a touching, empowering work… a potent lesson in theatremaking” before awarding it a 5-star review. Open Clasp has been generous enough to offer $10 off all performances with the discount code KEY25. There’s only one week left in the run, so be sure to head downtown to catch this magnificent performance.

A LITTLE ABOUT THE PLAY
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.
Devised by women from HMPYOI Low Newton and originally toured to male prisons, Key Change is a raw and illuminating portrayal of women in prison.
