Unusually for a play set within a secure institution, The Bach & Mozart Project tackles the harsh realities of incarceration and manages to ring from these struggles a positive, uplifting and transformative experience.

The play is an emotionally powerful, intellectually challenging, vibrant piece of new writing performed with tremendous physical commitment and intensity of spirit.
