PLAYS

Around 2014, Esther had an idea for a play. The story was inspired by the charity Fine Cell Work that goes into prisons and teaches men - most prisoners are men! - to do embroidery. After much research, many many drafts, and even more unexpectedly riveting hours spent in the sewing class of a high security prison, the play premiered at the Jermyn Street Theatre in London, in June 2018, to critical acclaim.
