Eight counts unlawful entry using imagination, four counts possession and cultivation of Shakespeare, and one count dangerous operation of a voice class.

In Cellfish hardened inmates come face to face with a whole new nightmare: Shakespeare classes with Miss Lucy! Some are looking to improve their parole chances, others want to kill some time and one just wants to kill. Funny and insightful, this gripping new work takes us behind the walls of a New Zealand Correctional Facility and into the minds of its residents.

Cellfish is a delicious dark comedy with thrilling twists. Be captured by the action.
