A new play consisting of alternating/interweaving male and female dialogues set in 'the everyday' of prison.

 

Two men, three women and a text full of banter that leans playfully towards the futile.

 

Variously described in reviews as 'stripped-down' or 'minimalist', the play premiered to great audience acclaim at Brighton Fringe 2021.

 

Prison Dialogues is written and directed by Mark C. Hewitt, whose play 'The Revenge Fantasy Club' was shortlisted for the Best New Play Award at Brighton Fringe 2013. It is loosely informed by his observations working as an artist in UK prisons.
