- Writers' Guild Award for Best Fringe Play
The true story of Shirley Jones, who kills her baby boy, Jordan, rather than have him taken away by his abusive father.
Jordan is the powerful and moving true story of a young woman's journey from the soggy chip papers of Morecambe to her trial for the murder of her baby boy, having saved him from his abusive father.
Anna Reynolds met Jones while they were serving sentences in the same prison. On her release, she co-wrote the play with award-winning playwright Moira Buffini.
Jordan is a short play for a solo performer, first staged at the Lilian Baylis Studio, Sadler's Wells, in 1992. It won the Writers' Guild Award for Best Fringe Play.
