We use theatre in prisons & the community to change lives and minds.



Clean Break changes lives and minds through theatre – on stage, in prison and in the community.

Founded in 1979 by two women in prison who believed in the power of theatre to transform lives, Clean Break has an unparalleled reputation for award-winning theatre, that keeps the complex subject of women in prison on the cultural radar, helping to reveal the damage caused by the failures of the criminal justice system. Through their unique work, they raise difficult questions, inspire debate, and help to effect profound and positive change in the lives of, women with experience of the criminal justice system or who are at risk of entering it.

This is an unprecedented time for us all, but for Clean Break’s Members, it is particularly difficult.

Clean Break’s Members are amongst those most affected by the financial, social and health impacts of COVID-19. The long-term impact of the lockdown will likely be felt deeply with many already in vulnerable positions due to circumstances such as poverty, mental ill health, unstable housing or experience of domestic abuse and they have a long history of struggling to access the support they need.

Clean Break has shifted how it is engaging with Members by transferring its theatre courses online, provided much need provisions from food, house advice to computer and data resources and by increasing its mental health provision. The charity is also changing how it is talking to audiences and at this event you will get a sneak preview of a play they are hoping to produce next year.

In this current crisis the demand for Clean Break’s services has increased, so please consider making a donation, however big or small, to allow Clean Break to continue to provide essential support.
