About: The Listening Room

"There is a bit that’s gonna blow your mind. I’ll let you sit down and tell ya.”

A stirring exploration of life, death and justice, The Listening Room features the true stories of five people whose lives were transformed by three moments of violence.

Years after trial and punishment, each one of them was given the chance to meet the person on the other side.

This is the extraordinary story of what happened when they said yes.

“You’ve gotta really think about… hang on a minute, what do I wanna say? Do I wanna tell em I wanna strangle you, what do I wanna say?”

By Harriet Madeley
Directed by Max Barton

Reviews

'...drags the audience to the very limits of human endurance... You emerge with your consciousness altered, your conception of human beings elevated and amplified. Which is the goal of great drama. A painful, shocking, vital, uplifting experience. Quite unforgettable.' The Spectator

'The air was thick with emotion and the room was filled with tears laughter, and compassion as the story addressed the raw beauty and pain of victim awareness, from both sides.' The Prison Fellowship

Winner of The Chris Donovan Trust Restorative Justice Award for Best Play

OFFIE Nominated for Best Ensemble
