A Memory of Two Mondays

I don’t understand how they come in every morning. Every Morning and every morning. And no end in sight

Set in a Brooklyn automobile parts warehouse during the Great Depression in the 1930s. this wistful play explores the dreams of a young man yearning for a college education in the midst of desperate people stumbling through the workday in a haze of hopelessness and despondency and alcoholism.

It was performed by category D prisoners on licence in the community.

A cast of HMP Latchmere House prisoners
It turned a disparate group of people into a unit working towards a goal, helping each other, recognising our weaknesses and our strengths
Prisoner cast member
It gave a bunch of guys, some of whom did not have a great deal of respect, either for others or themselves, a feeling of worth, and the knowledge that they were capable of doing things if they had the desire and the opportunity
