'Real' home setting for domestic violence play

A new production in Bristol which aims to highlight the issue of domestic violence is being staged entirely in a residential house.

Our Glass House, by Common Wealth, is using the setting of an ordinary domestic home, rather than a theatre, in Lawrence Weston to highlight what goes on "behind closed doors."

The powerful play, part funded by Bristol City Council, uses performance text based on interviews with men and women who have experienced domestic violence in Bristol.

BBC reporter Laura Jones spoke to the play's directors Rhiannon White and Evie Manning.
