A probation office, a prison cell and a homeless shelter. Meet Annie, Julie and Tracy.

A probation office, a prison cell, a homeless shelter... Sugar is set in an abstract world where we meet three women all ‘doing time’ in very different ways, caught in a waiting space of continuous floors and revolving doors. Three survivors. Three voices seldom heard.

Meet Annie, Julie and Tracey as we circle around their stories in an unflinching trilogy which honours the hard realities of lives lived in and around the criminal justice system.

Presented by Open Clasp Theatre Company, Sugar is an intimate piece of theatre made for film, devised with women who are homeless, on probation or in prison.
