For many years we have worked in close partnership with Women’s Services, Tomorrow’s Women a multi-agency Community Justice Centre which supports women who are at high risk of re-offending and who have multiple needs.
We offer a year-round creative programme with participants and staff members working towards performances with the Citizens Theatre. Our plays explore specific themes such as the criminal justice system, routes to positive change and relationships.
The women also take part in workshops based at the centre in the Gorbals including creative writing, drama and costume making sessions. They recently recorded an album of original songs created in the songwriting sessions.
Past projects have enabled us to work closely with Prison Officers on secondment from their roles within Scottish Prison Service and have taken part in performances at the Citizens Theatre.
The Citizens Theatre has a long history of working with women’s groups in the community. Find out about other Projects for Women.
