2019. Karl is in prison and he needs to get out. It’s doing his head in and the only way he’s found to escape is by dreaming up unlikely schemes to break out. He’s angry and no-one seems to be able to calm him down - least of all the prison chaplain. Then, Si, a new cell mate arrives and everything changes because Si, knows some extraordinary stories that might just set Karl free -
51AD. Paul and Silas find themselves behind bars. The Phillipian community are outraged at these troublemakers that have come to the city. Their jailer doesn’t want any trouble - one earthquake later and he soon finds that true freedom has nothing to do with bars.
These two stories, one ancient and one modern intertwine in a new play about prejudice, hope and forgiveness and what it means to be released…
