This wide night at GM Fringe

BIG BLANKET PRODUCTIONS are a new innovative women's theatre company concerned with bringing women to the forefront of performance.

They are ndertaking stories that have something to say to a wider audience. Their debut project 'THIS WIDE NIGHT' written by Chloe Moss was first staged by Clean Break at London Soho's Theatre in 2008.

Reviving the play for this year's Greater Manchester Fringe, BIG BLANKET PRODUCTIONS exposes many of the play's key themes surrounding the judicial system but also the needs of the individual.

As a FEMALE FOCUSSED company they are passionate in pursuing projects that take a stance against inequality and they promote inclusion regardless of background: creed, religion, gender, sexuality and disability. Naturally, at the heart of this company is a passion for LGBTQ+ projects and they shed light on this in their production of THIS WIDE NIGHT.

The play is a TWO-HANDER and explores the relationship between two women, LORRAINE and MARIE. On the inside of prison they shared everything, but having done their time they have to face society and find their feet. However, the reality of freedom is only met by a constant fear that only threatens to break what these two women share.
