In Something To Take Off The Edge, Errol McGlashan delivers a gripping one-man show taking audiences on a visceral journey into the world of a high-security prison. This tragicomedy, which is as humorous as it is thought-provoking, explores themes of addiction, literacy, mental health, and friendship.
Through the eyes of Ezra, a serving prisoner, we see the web of relationships and power dynamics that dictate life behind bars. Amidst the darkness, glimmers of humanity and unexpected moments of connection emerge, revealing the resilience and humour that can exist in even the bleakest circumstances.
Flirting with Narcotics, Chocolate Hobnobs and Shakespeare while serving long-term prison sentences during 1980’s Britain, this raw and unforgettable exploration of the complexities of prison life is a must-see for anyone interested in thought-provoking theatre that challenges conventional ideas.
Drawing on real-life stories and experiences, Something To Take Off The Edge delves into the realities of the criminal justice system offering a glimpse into the struggles of those serving long sentences. With a powerhouse performance, this one-man show is a rollercoaster of emotions that will leave you laughing, crying, and everything in between.
