Convict Monologues was the result of a ten month collaborative project in 2017 between the Risdon Prison Creative Learning Program and the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra Outreach Program.

TSO Australian Composers’ School alumnus Chris Williams was invited to write Incidental Music for the production and the result was a hauntingly beautiful score that offered the audience moments of reflection between monologues and helped transition the audience into a different change of mood or scene.
