MAKE GOOD: THE POST OFFICE SCANDAL

A new musical by Jeanie O'Hare (book) and Jim Fortune (music and lyrics)
Directed by Elle While

Over twenty years a silent tragedy has unfolded in the heart of our communities. Entirely innocent sub-postmasters had their lives torn apart and faced bankruptcy, isolation, and jail for crimes that were never committed, for debts that never existed.
 
Directly informed by conversations with affected sub-postmasters, Make Good dives into this most local of stories, capturing the raw emotions, the bewilderment and the unbreakable bond of faith and family that were put to the test. Experience the astonishing resilience of entire communities as lives were destroyed in a scandal that isn’t over yet...
 
A new musical three years in the making that tells the story of the Post Office Scandal, now recognised as one of the gravest miscarriages of justice in British history.
 
“If we knew that this was going to happen to us, that we were going to become criminals by buying a Post Office, we would never, ever have done it.” Sub-postmaster
