Résumé

Jim Fenner, a prison screw who really lives up to his nickname, is engaged in a power battle with the liberalising Prison Governor, Helen Stewart. So liberal is Helen that she becomes besotted with blonde lesbian Nikki Wade, a prisoner doing time for killing a cop (but since this cop had raped Nikki’s girlfriend, this is okay.) Jim’s sexual advances cause the suicide of newly imprisoned Rachel Hicks, and Jim’s dastardly plan is to make Helen carry all the blame. However, he is exposed by the prisoners and a closed-circuit TV camera. The remaining characters include the sadistic warder, Sylvia “Bodybag” Hollamby, Shell, the prison bully, two prostitutes named Julie (“sluts in a rut”), the gangster’s moll Yvonne (“banged up without a bang”), and Crystal, the shop-lifting gospel-singer (who “did it for Jesus”).

Synopsis complet

Quelques commentaires

Bad Girls - The Musical takes as its starting point the original core characters from the first three series of Bad Girls on TV.
This was based on the TV series which was broadcast from 1999 as a rather gritty true-to-life prison drama. However, as the plots became increasingly ludicrous and the tongue more firmly placed in the cheek, the series developed a camp following and accordingly ended up as a stage musical where a prison rape scene is speedily followed by a Busby Berkeley style dance routine on a light-up staircase.
