Commentaires :
The cult Australian TV soap set in a women’s prison was re-created as a camp musical which dispensed with any seriousness, kept the wobbly sets and daft plot, added some witty songs, and ended up as a gloriously hilarious show for some critics - and as a complete load of tacky amateurish rubbish for others. Liverpool’s own Lily Savage (Paul O’Grady) has been wrongly jailed for prostitution, theft and murder whilst on holiday Down Under - accused of stealing a fondue set. Joan “ the Freak” Ferguson (from the original TV cast) is a leather-clad jackbooted prison warder with a compulsive fondness for strip-searching the prisoners. British actress, Liz Smith, plays a mad old lady doing bird pottering around in a dishevelled and confused state. Such plot as there was involved Joan Ferguson attempting to poison the Governor’s tea in order to take over control of the prison to show the prisoners some “real discipline”

Commentaires :
This production was originally created in 1998 by Opera North and now revived for a short tour. The original Leeds production had been much praised, but this revival was loaded with superlatives, with several critics claiming this was its best staging to date.
