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.

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. 

The musical is written by the authors of the TV series, Maureen Chadwick and Ann McManus, with music and lyrics by Kath Gotts.
