A spokeswoman for Yeadon Theatre Company said: “Bad Girls the Musical is a fresh, funny and original British musical in two Acts. It is based on a book by Maureen Chadwick and Ann McManus and the music and lyrics are by Kath Gotts. The musical is widely based on the popular award -winning ITV1 prison drama series, Bad Girls.

“Bad Girls the Musical introduces us to an anarchic bunch of women on the edge and up against the odds. They include, prostitutes, addicts, shop-lifters, murderers, each with a story to tell of lives left behind and their dreams of a better future ahead, however, an entrenched old guard of prison officers are out to dash their every hope.”
