What’s in the new July issue of Kentishtowner?

Longstanding NW5-based charity Clean Break leads our summer print issue

Some charities genuinely change lives and minds. One such example is Clean Break, whose medium is theatre – on stage, in prison and in the community, where it produces ground-breaking plays with women writers and actors.

Founded in 1979 by two female prisoners who believed they could bring the hidden stories of imprisoned women to a wider audience, the charity’s been based in Kentish Town since 1995 – and is still the only theatre company of its kind remaining true to these roots.

Inside our new print issue, out today, we speak to artistic director Anna Hermann about how the company is marking four decades, as well as what’s happening now in 2019. One of the year’s highlights is Sweatbox, the revival of Chloë Moss’s play performed in a prison van and currently travelling across the UK. Catch it while you can: cast members Funke Adeleke, Jade Small and Posy Sterling are pictured here on our cover.

Elsewhere inside, photographer Dan Hall uncovers a little-known London documentary from the late 1960s, and we count down a slew of summer festies, happenings and new streetfood pop-ups in our seasonal food and drink issue. Not to mention Hicce, the most garlanded new opening in Coal Drops Yard.


Finally, we’ve teamed up with new Camden Market destination Italian Alley (read our review here) to offer you some tasty discounts.
