A dark comedy set in a prison, Doing Time is a piece like no other, which sets out to explore the relationships between strangers thrust together in this unique and trying environment. With their release dates a distant and faraway thought, and with long, slow, laborious days ahead, Mart and Frank fill their time with the rumours about Crapper and his young cell mate, Scanner. To relieve the never-ending boredom, they become investigators; Did anything untoward happen in Crapper’s cell? Where did Frank lose his precious treats? What is going on with Gloria? And how can Mart get through all of this without losing his mind.
