Clean Break is a British theatre company set up in 1979 by two women in prison

It exists to tell the stories of women with experience of the criminal justice system and to transform women's lives through theatre

Over 40 years, Clean Break has commissioned some of the most progressive and brilliant women writers to write ground-breaking plays, alongside developing the writing skills of the women they work with in its London studios and in prisons

This is a collection of monologues from this canon

Rebel Voices - Monologues for Women by Women celebrates the opportunities inherent when women represent themselves

Offering female performers a diverse set of monologues reflecting a range of characters in age, ethnicity and lived experience, the material is drawn from a mix of published and unpublished works

This book is for any performer who does not see themselves represented in mainstream plays

It's for lovers of radical women's theatre and for rebels everywhere who believe that the act of speaking and being heard can create change
