I have
spent 70
pale dawns
and
dungeon dark
dusks

searching,

and here
I am

finally

finally

shining back” 

Inspired by real stories from women working in street prostitution, 'A Cracked Plaster Sky' tells the irreverent and, at moments, painfully amusing story of Grace, and the voice inside her head. A voice that, despite poverty, violence, imprisonment, estrangement and despair, won’t shut up.

Told over 70 years, the story strips to the bone, a fleshy raw life. It proposes a different way of being. It reveals other shining universes.

'A Cracked Plaster Sky' represents the first commission from Futures Theatre's creative engagement programme 'An Alternative Life', a three year programme working with some of the most vulnerable women in Lambeth which aims to build confidence, communication skills and self-belief in a different, positive future.
