Bad Girls – The Musical
7 Aug, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The WA premiere of a musical following the lives of women in a British prison – and their relationships in a variety of traumatic circumstances – is the latest offering from Blak Yak Theatre this winter. Directed by Lorna Mackie at the Chrissie Parrott Arts space, Bad Girls – The Musical is based on the UK TV series featuring female inmates in the fictional Her Majesty’s Prison Larkhall.
It is the story of new, idealistic Wing Governor Helen Stewart and her battles with the entrenched old guard of Officer Jim Fenner and his sidekick Sylvia Hollamby. A love story also develops between Helen and charismatic inmate Nikki Wade.
