missing. No wool, no kits. Especially no needles”
Lady Anne Tree – one of the most aristocratic women in England – spent
her life in prisons. As a visitor, she saw first-hand the aggression, low
self-esteem, and high reoffending rates among the most hardened criminals. Lady
Anne thought she had the answer. She would teach them needlecraft.
Based on a true story, this is an inspiring and heart-warming debut
play by best-selling novelist Esther Freud, directed by BAFTA-winning filmmaker
Praise for Esther Freud.
