NEWS: Synergy Theatre Project

In 2005 The Forgiveness Project undertook a period of research in HMPs Brixton and Holloway in partnership with Synergy Theatre Project (http://www.synergytheatreproject.co.uk/) and Olivier Award-winning playwright Shelagh Stephenson.  This collaboration was successfully brought to fruition through a theatre production of the resulting commissioned play, The Long Road which opened at London’s Soho Theatre in May 2008 to much critical acclaim. Through the production and activities accompanying it, including workshop productions performed in prisons and The Criminal Justice System in Crisis programme of talks, we were able to place issues of forgiveness, reparation and restorative justice once again in the public arena.
