Watching Glory Die

13:50, 01 - 25 Aug

Judith Thompson's riveting and exquisite portrayal of three women trapped in a broken prison system will leave you dumbfounded. The play is inspired by the shocking and true story of teenager, Ashley Smith, who – after five years of being misdiagnosed, and mistreated, hallucinating away in "therapeutic quiet" – died by suicide in her prison cell while guards watched. Watching Glory Die takes a bold dramatic leap to forge the kind of visceral lyricism that is the hallmark of Judith Thompson at her most powerful.
