Bad Girls - The Musical
📅 Tuesday 16 - Saturday 20 July 2019 Venue: John Cooper Studio, 41 Monkgate, York, YO31 7PB
Set in a women’s prison, Bad Girls is a powerful, uplifting and raucously entertaining British musical, based on the award-winning and hugely popular television drama.
The show was developed by the creators of Bad Girls, Maureen Chadwick and Ann McManus, in collaboration with composer and lyricist Kath Gotts, and director Maggie Norris, and it premiered at West Yorkshire Playhouse in June 2006. The girls were then ‘sent down’ to London for a West End run at the Garrick Theatre from August to November 2007.
Bad Girls introduces us to an anarchic bunch of women on the edge and up against the odds – prostitutes, addicts, shop-lifters, murderers – each with a story to tell of lives left behind and dreams of a better future ahead, and an entrenched old guard of prison officers out to dash their every hope.
Idealistic new Wing Governor Helen Stewart arrives at HMP Larkhall on a mission to reform the ‘us and them’ regime – and finds a surprising ally and soulmate in charismatic cop-killer Nikki Wade. But both face a ruthless adversary in corrupt Officer Jim Fenner, who wants Helen’s job and will do everything he can to undermine her…..
Then the tragic suicide of a young inmate – in which Jim Fenner is implicated – unleashes an angry protest on the wing 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 Fenner’s misdeeds, the race is on for all the women to overcome their differences and join forces against their common enemy…..
Full of big songs and characters, Bad Girls is an exhilarating mix of gritty reality, rebellious spirit, emotional honesty and irreverent humour, that touches hearts and kicks up a riot.
