Bad Girls Jailhouse

A Musical, Set In A Women’s PrisonOriginal poster for Bad Girls Jailhouse in 1994

Bad Girls Jailhouse is a heartwarming story of an innocent woman’s adventures in the big house. Featuring a strip search, a riot, and a shower scene – all set to music (!) – it is surely only a matter of time before this play wins a major award for it’s contributions to society.

When Bad Girls Jailhouse made its debut in Angus Kohm’s hometown of Winnipeg, the critics said:

“Twisted toe tappin’ tunes… Kohm is the Andrew Lloyd Webber of women’s prison musicals!” – Kevin Prokosh, Winnipeg Free Press, (1994)

“Hilarious!  Four Stars!” – Riva Harrison, Winnipeg Sun (1994)

“Rejoice! The Rocky Horror Picture Show now has a true, if illegitimate, heir!” – D.G. Valdron, The Jenny Revue (1994)

One of the critics (hello, Den) liked Bad Girls Jailhouse so much he went on to design the posters for the debut of the UNCUT version of the play in 1996.

Book, music and lyrics by Angus Kohm

A crooked warden, sadistic guards, bloodthirsty convicts, and one innocent woman clash behind bars in a white hot story of violence, revenge, and singing and dancing. Yes, it’s a musical spoof of women’s prison films!
