Summary:'Olly's Prison' is a hard and painful vision of a selfish and disconnected society from which is it impossible to escape. Mike tries to talk to his daughter and get her to drink the cup of tea he has made. She will not answer, or drink it, or even move. And suddenly their world turns to tragedy. Many of the scenes are set in prison, as Mike is incarcerated for his crime, but it seems the greater and more profound prison is outside. While incarcerated, Mike is denied suicide; when released, he is denied freedom. 'Olly's Prison' is a bleak condemnation of society's helpless inhumanity. This is a stage adaptation by Edward Bond of his screenplay of the same name, first broadcast by the BBC in 1993.
