Inside Intelligence

SUMMARY

Sex, politics and the power of love are explored in the world premiere of this brilliant, provocative Scandi noir thriller from Northern Ireland’s multi-award-winning Abbie Spallen (Pumpgirl, Strandline, Lally The Scut - Irish Play of the Year, Irish Times December 2015).

Bryony Adams is an idealistic government scientist working to create a new and humane form of punishment, within a justice system crippled by prison overcrowding. But when a cabinet minister with a reputation tries to exploit her idealism for profit she feels betrayed. Her response is extreme and unexpected and will have devastating consequences for her and those she loves.

Commissioned and directed for Inside Intelligence by Robert Shaw (Product, Assembly 2014), Poena 5X1 also has music specially composed by twice Grammy-nominated Tarik O’Regan, described by Gramophone Magazine as one of the leading British composers of his generation. Poena 5X1 has a fierce political edge and one final terrifying twist.

Admission: £6 – £11(£10)
