Back Door Parole

12th May 2021, 11:07am | By Celia Feane | Event Date : 20210625

‘That’s the system, Kathy – no system!’

Ron’s spent a lifetime in prison and the outside world is no longer beckoning. He, like thousands of others, will see out his days inside. He’s come to terms with that but being part of the UK’s ageing prison population is bringing its own challenges, particularly to those whose job it is to make the ‘system’ function. Kathy becomes part of Ron’s life as a newly appointed Quaker Prison Chaplain. Ron is something of a spiritual tourist, having visited a range of faith-based destinations before arriving at Kathy’s Quaker group. She, in turn, is both idealistic and overwhelmed by what she experiences.

With skill and humour the play explores the complexities of the UK penal system and how this impacts upon both inmates and those who work within it. In particular, it exposes the pressures and stresses caused by the increasing number of elderly men who will see out their days in prison cells.
