'Beerey' is a verbatim one act play, sharing the true experience of Elle Beere during and since the arrest and wrongful conviction of her Dad Jon Beere, known as Beerey. Beerey was arrested in 2011 part as part of Operation Disorient (one of the UK's biggest international drugs smuggling busts) in 2011. He is serving twenty four years in prison for a crime he maintains that he did not commit, and is fighting for his freedom alongside the rest of 'The Freshwater Five' (as they have become known).
The play tells the usually hidden story of the impact of a wrongful conviction on the children and family members who get left behind. Elle tells her story of exactly how it feels with total honesty and candor, with no holds barred and big dollop of feisty humor.
At the time of writing Jon Beere and the Freshwater Five are still being held in prison, and their families are still fighting to get the fresh evidence of their innocence heard by the Court of Appeal.
