Something strange is going on at HM Prison Long Rudford. The hard men of B-wing are going soft. They're putting on costumes and wigs and taking singing and dancing lessons. They've turned into Thespians, for an awfully amateur production. But all is not what it seems. Behind the theatrical posturing lies an elaborate escape plan. Ringleaders Jimmy and Rudy have come up with what they consider a watertight scheme to coast their way to freedom. But all is not plain sailing when a romance blossoms between Jimmy and his costar Annabel, the beautiful Prisoner Support officer. Will it be curtains for Jimmy and his gang, or will they pull off the performance of their lives? And for Jimmy, will the choice be love or liberty?

"Cattaneo once again shows his affinity with downtrodden characters with hearts of gold, and builds towards a frankly side-splitting final act. His biggest achievement is in compiling an exquisite cast. This is a genuinely touching, often rip-roaring and impeccably acted romantic romp."
Mark Dinning, Empire
