Performed 12 April - 7 May 7 2011 Hagateatern in Gothenburg
GEST presents the Swedish premiere of This Wide Night by Chloë Moss.
A sentence doesn't end when you leave prison.
Having just begun to rebuild a life on the outside, Marie is confronted with her past when former cellmate Lorraine shows up unannounced at her doorstep. They used to share everything inside, but on the outside things seem different. The friendship that once protected them now threatens to smother the fragile freedom they have found.
This Wide Night is a witty and tender portrayal of two women trying to start again.
This Wide Night was inspired by Chloë Moss' work with female prisoners at HMP Cookham Wood.
This tender portrayal of friendship between two women was a huge success in its native England and it is with great joy that GEST is able to present its Swedish premiere.
