After initially being detained for throwing apples at a postman, Ashley, called Glory in the play, endured four years of solitary confinement before her suicide; the penal system could not tolerate her defiant and rebellious character, and finally – fatally – guards were instructed not to intervene in her suicide attempts until she had stopped breathing.
In the end, it comes across as a strangely untheatrical experience, focused entirely on the three voices and their words.
Kelli Fox, Kathryn Haggis and Nathanya Barnett all deliver moving and deeply-felt performances, as three women trapped in a system that cannot cope with Glory, and would rather watch her die than make the effort to change.
Until 25 August. Tomorrow 1:50pm
