The Jailhouse Frocks - THE STORY ...

Dimwitted Officer Dwayne’s tranquil evening at the Birchwood County police station is shattered with the arrest 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.

This is a hilarious comedy of mistaken identity and misguided law enforcement. Who knew going to jail could be so much fun!

All tickets include a delicious buffet style meal from The Grazing Plate.

Presented by South Canterbury Drama League by arrangement with NZ Play Bureau.
