I want to do a show with prisoners… tips?


-The play: Roberto Zucco by Koltes with prisoners and actors with rotating prisoners/actors playing Zucco and all other characters

-Mathilde wants to insert reportage section from inmates: Zucco is no one and everyone at the same time, master of disguise he escaped several times

-Cardiff prison only keep their inmates for 3 weeks making any continuous work difficult

-Cardiff prison inmate radio is very active, a radio piece?

-working with prisoners in jail would be for prisoners spectators as bringing audience in is unmanageable/impossible due to security

-could try to do a show with prisoners in a disaffected prison to enable audience

-with either/or ex prison with ex prisoners or inmates of Pencoed Open Prison

– Other challenges open prison inmates tend to have to get back early evening so an afternoon show only

-How would the prisoners react to such a piece, too close to home: Workshops required to test enthusiasm and interest
