Artless Theatre Tour: If Prison Walls Could Speak

The Artless Theatre Company is a Christian ministry who are partnering with us here at Release International to launch an exciting new drama, If Prison Walls Could Speak.

The production is based on Petr Jasek’s powerful testimony of his experience in jail in Sudan, as told in his book Imprisoned with ISIS (available from our eStore).

The tour will take place in around 100 churches in the UK beginning in September 2021 and running through to November 2022. We plan to deliver the tour face to face in churches that are open. There may also be online performances via digital technology and social media.
