News   Carol Tamber Best of Edinburgh Award Goes to Key Change, New Play Devised by Women Prisoners
 
The annual Carol Tambor Best of Edinburgh Award, presented by the Carol Tambor Theatrical Foundation to fund a New York run of the winner, has been presented to Key Change, a play devised by female prisoners at Low Newton prison, that was seen at Edinburgh's Summerhall.

In a four-star review for The Guardian, Lyn Gardner wrote that it "is performed by four fantastic professional actors, but it was devised by the women inside the prison with help of writer Catrina McHugh and director Laura Lindow. Despite the input from Open Clasp theatre, the voices are of the women themselves, often raw, always heartfelt and sometimes singing with an everyday poetry as if the devising process had unlocked a waterfall of creativity."
