It's 1974, rioting prisoners have set fire to Long Kesh jail in Belfast and much of the prison is destroyed.

This gripping play by multi award winning writer Seamas Keenan, follows five prisoners now pitched into a world of violence, paranoia and hunger as they struggle against British soldiers, each other and their own personal demons.

Produced by The Playhouse for Derry Londonderry's 2013 UK City of Culture programme, this powerful and captivating play was met with critical acclaim.
