About | Key Change

Teesside University and Open Clasp Theatre invite you to a free screening of the multi-award winning Key Change. Devised with women in HMP Low Newton the play is a raw and illuminating portrayal of women’s prison experiences. It won the Best of Edinburgh award in 2015 and became the New York Times Critics Pick. It has already been performed in the Houses of Parliament.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A round-table comprising of the production team, academics, charity workers, and political figures to discuss what can be learnt from the production. The event coincides with the International Day to End Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) - a UN driven 16 Day campaign against Gender Based Violence.

The version you’ll see was commissioned by The Space and recorded by the BBC at Durham Gala Theatre on 21/8/17.
