About the larp
This larp is a realistic look at the education system inside a closed women’s prison in the UK. The larp will allow you to workshop a believable character and experience some of the issues involved in the criminal justice system.
Laura Wood has written several larps which have run at Consequences, Stockholm Scenario Festival and Tallinn larp Festival. She is keen to introduce people to larping and is a founder of The Immersivist Club, a group running Nordic larps in London. Laura has run several workshops and given talks on the importance of safety and consent in larping.
