Clean Break announce 40th anniversary spring season
2019 opens with Clean Break’s first season under new Artistic Directors, Anna Herrmann and Róisín McBrinn – featuring new plays, performances and projects created by artists, high profile partners and collaborators, and Clean Break Members.
Forty years ago, two incredible women in prison set up Clean Break, believing theatre could bring the hidden stories of women to a wider audience. Over the last four decades, the company has remained true to this vision, changing women’s lives by providing opportunities, provoking conversation, and creating theatre of the highest calibre with the leading women theatre artists of the day. We are immensely proud to lead the company into its next chapter with a programme to launch our tenure that celebrates our legacy and signals a bold new future, with invaluable new relationships being forged and our Members at the heart of everything we do.”
The season includes a unique co-production with the Royal Court subverting media images of women in prison, a new play examining how loneliness impacts on young women as part of Arcola Creative/Disruption Festival, a partnership performance with Cardboard Citizens, and more.
