ABOUT The Jailhouse Frocks 28th Nov – 6th Dec

Jailhouse Frocks by Devon Williamson – in association with Play Bureau NZ, 28th Nov – 6th Dec

Shattering dimwitted Officer Dwayne’s tranquil evening at the Birchwood County police station are the arrests of three unlikely women; the mayor’s wife in a state of complete alcoholic breakdown, the local mad cat-lady looking for somewhere to stay out of the rain, and a dangerous looking New Yorker who has managed to crash her car into the police station while speeding through town.

The already chaotic situation descends into mayhem with the arrival of a New York gangster, disguised as an FBI agent, hell-bent on exacting revenge on his wife who is locked in the cell. By the end of the night, the ladies have formed a gang, sang some songs, escaped from jail and locked the gangster up in their place, leaving Officer Dwayne wondering how on earth he’s managed to make the arrest of a lifetime.

Described critically as “a bright, unabashed stage romp that’s a lot of fun right from the start and guaranteed to lift spirits” The Jailhouse Frocks is a sure fire comedy cracker.

The play features the songs “Respect”, “Monster Mash”, “I Yi Yi Yi Yi” (I Like You Very Much) “Mummy Works Nights”, “I Will Survive”, “You Don’t Own Me”, “I Fought The Law” and “These Boots Were Made for Walking”

Duration: 120 minutes. 2 Acts. 3F 2M.
