Imprisoned, a programme of two new plays written by Marie Hale and directed by Kasia Różycki (Off the Cliff) and Hugh Allison (The Yellowchair Performance Experience) comes to Barons Court Theatre in August.

In this double-bill, Hale looks at imprisonment – both practical and emotional.

In Something for the Men, in the early 1980s and stuck in a dead-end job, Vicky shares stories about the disappointments in her life. Life takes an unexpected turn when Lou, an independent woman, contradicts Vicky’s beliefs. Vicky is born at the wrong time, but she soon begins to realise that she can be a person in her own right.

In Your Sacrament Divine, Helen advises new inmates on prison life whilst waiting to be taken to the High Court of Justice. Helen has been dealt a bad hand in life, but not even solitary confinement can diminish her strength of character.

Former stand-up comedian Marie Hale has had five monologues and two duologues performed at the ADC Theatre in Cambridge, and a radio play, Stand Up, Young Comedian, broadcast on Radio North.

Venue:      Barons Court Theatre, The Curtain’s Up Pub, 28a Comeragh Road, W14 9HR.
