The Making of a Criminal: Part 2

We are delighted to invite you to participate in our exciting events we are hosting at the Artscape Theatre from 28 to 30 September.

Confessions of a Shoplifter

I started shoplifting when I was six years old.

We are delighted to invite you to participate in our exciting events we are hosting at the Artscape Theatre from 28 to 30 September.

‘The Making of a Criminal: Part 2' is a compelling live performance, created and performed by inmates from Pollsmoor Correctional Centre and participants from the NICRO Help I am Free cultural development outreach program. The performance reveals a glimpse of the hidden artistic, musical, and poetic talent found in the prisons of the Western Cape through the efforts of NICRO's Help I Am Free rehabilitative theatre project, in collaboration with Vardeteateret, supported by FK Norway.
