The new urban musical performed by ex-cons
26th November 2014

It is life imitation art and vice versa.

The new urban musical, about a former offender determined to turn his life around, is being played by former prisioners doing just that.

The show stars young former offenders and care leavers alongside professional actors. 

‘The Realness' has been receiving rave review of it’s show at The Big House in Hackney.

It's all the brainchild of Maggie Norris, who put the group together. She  and two cast members Kath Gotts and Dymond Allen, join Headline London to talk about the new show.
