‘A sharp, impeccably performed and blazingly impassioned piece of theatre…simply terrific’ **** The Times

Fringe First Award winner and hit of the Edinburgh Festival 2011, Release explores the lives of three prisoners in their first months after release, as they attempt to reconnect with the people and life they left behind.

At a time when two thirds of UK prisoners re-offend within two years, Release fuses high energy physical theatre, an original score and mixed media to create an explosive insight into just how hard it is to go straight.

With Shane Shambhu (Ramanujan in Complicite's A Disappearing Number), and Verity Hewlett (Queen Victoria's Men, Channel 4), Release was created through a two year development process of interviews and site visits with prisoners, ex-offenders and probation officers.

‘Icon Theatre has created one of the most compelling, theatrically effective pieces of storytelling on the Fringe… ’ **** The Scotsman
