This production ended on 24/02/2018


Suggested to us by Matt Glasby, The Work is set inside a single room
in Folsom Prison, it follows three men from outside as they participate
in a four-day group therapy retreat with level-four convicts. Over the
four days, each man in the room takes his turn at delving deep into his
past. The raw and revealing process that the incarcerated men undertake
exceeds the expectations of the free men, ripping them out of their
comfort zones and forcing them to see themselves and the prisoners
in unexpected ways.

Fascinating and deeply moving, this fly-on-the-wall doc about Folsom
Prison's unconventional group therapy program packs a powerful punch.
