Clean Break is a feminist theatre company started in 1979 by Jenny Hicks and Jackie Holborough, whilst inmates of HMP Askham Grange They expanded the prison’s annual Christmas show into Efemera, a two-hour show about prison life. It was later performed for a two-night run at York Arts Centre, which made its 21 castmembers the first British prisoners to perform onstage outside of prison. Upon their release, Hicks and Holborough formed the theatre company, Clean Break in order to tell the hidden stories of women in prison.
