I dance in the horror of grief.
Three men at Woodhill prison are dead. Their families demand answers. This is a call to arms about the crisis facing prisons.
In their own words, lyrically told, three families investigate what happened to their boys and shine a light on the hidden story of HMP Woodhill. What they discover is so haunting, it turns their world upside down.
An explosive true story by multi-award-winning LUNG, Woodhill opened at The North Wall, Oxford, in July 2023.
