Description: Blak Yak Theatre are delighted to announce our next production, Bad Girls the Musical, Book by MAUREEN CHADWICK & ANN MCMANUS, Music and Lyrics by KATH GOTTS, by arrangement with Hal Leonard Australia Pty Ltd on behalf of Josef Weinberger LTD. London.
Bad Girls – The Musical follows female inmates set in the fictional HMP 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. It also follows the love story that develops between Helen and charismatic inmate Nikki Wade.
A tragic death on the wing – in which Jim Fenner is implicated – leads to an angry protest from the women and forces Helen and Nikki to their opposite sides of the bars. But when it’s clear that Helen stands to lose her job over Jim Fenner’s misdeeds, the race is on for the women to nail Jim once and for all.
