Background


Following its debut at the Leicester Square Theatre and 5 stars run at Brighton Fringe Festival, the powerful and paradoxically hopeful Gilded Butterflies comes to The Hope Theatre.


Tormented Casserole Productions seek to examine all aspects of humanity through devised work.


Inspired by their meeting with death row survivors, they explore the volume of a living soul contained in one cell.


In US prisons an estimated 80,000 people are living in solitary confinement.


Existing in a small, sterile room for 23 hours a day.


What would keep your hope alive?
