This Wide Night

Show Information

Lorraine, released from prison after twelve years inside, treks to her former cellmate Marie’s new flat. Marie, dodgy and ashamed of their shared past, hesitates to welcome Lorraine back into her life. But no one makes Marie laugh like Lorraine. Can two friends, uniquely bonded by their former circumstances, find belonging in each other once more? This gutsy story of female friendship and winner of the 2009 Susan Smith Blackburn prize is inspired by real accounts of women in a UK prison. This Wide Night holds and humanizes two formerly incarcerated women in an isolated studio that may or may not be equipped for real freedom.

This Wide Night contains brief discussions of the following sensitive topics: incarceration, domestic violence and homicide. There are allusions to past suicide attempts and sexual assault, in addition to a short depiction of violence and intermittent alcohol consumption.
