Esther Freud (Author)


"Nothing can go missing. No wool, no kits. Especially no needles"
Lady Anne Tree - one of the most aristocratic women in England - spent her life in prisons. As a visitor, she saw first-hand the aggression, low self-esteem, and high reoffending rates among the most hardened criminals. Lady Anne thought she had the answer. She would teach them needlecraft.

Based on a true story, this is an inspiring and heart-warming debut play by best-selling novelist Esther Freud, directed by BAFTA-winning filmmaker Gaby Dellal.

Praise for Esther Freud.
"A superbly gifted writer" NEW YORK TIMES
"Fresh, witty, involving and touching" INDEPENDENT
