We are a university looking to record a scripted experience piece for students on a health care degree. This is for a block of study about forensic mental health/prison, to prepare students for working in this area.
We want to portray the experience of a young man (around mid twenties) with a Black/African/Caribbean background, who has experienced various institutional and systemic barriers and traumas, leading to a stay in prison.

This is meant to highlight, for the students, the experience of health care, discrimination, and the law, and how this impacts health and social outcomes. We want to draw attention to the inequalities in the system e.g. black people (53%), Asian (55%), and other ethnic groups (81%) being more likely to be sent to prison for an indictable offence at the Crown Court, even when factoring in higher not-guilty plea rates (Lammy report).

This can be recorded remotely at home on the actor's computer. I have started a script, which is a monologue, based on my working experience (I am a therapist in HM Prisons) with first-hand accounts from patients. However, I am very much open to the actor's input and adaptations where they see fit.
The final recording should be no more than 20 minutes I would say.
Thanks in advance.
