"Two Mondays" rehearsed and played in the prisoner’s dining room at Latchmere House, and then toured to Nescot College, Roehampton University, and for the general public at The Cockpit Theatre. This study examines how Miller’s work, a rarely performed or studied one act play, resonated in such a unique context – how it affected the signification of the play, beyond the eyes of theatre critics, and impacted the cast, crew, and audiences.
