Didn’t Die

Annie Caulfield

Dinah and Simone are two former patients of a high security special hospital. Katie is their psychiatric nurse. But on the day that Dinah’s estranged daughter plans to visit, events take a difficult turn…

Yards of pink satin and songs about Mae West pepper this dark comedy about three women’s friendship.

Didn’t Die is the 2003 production by Clean Break which, each year, commissions a play from a woman playwright on issues relating to women in the criminal justice or mental health systems.

The commitment to these women is at the heart of Clean Break which promotes theatre and drama as a means to improve their life chances.
