About Women Behind Bars

Women’s House of Detention, 1960. The hair is high, the dresses are tight, and the women are bad! Behind steel bars and under unforgiving institutional lighting, a cast of characters plays out the age-old game of survival of the fittest in stilettos and lipstick!

A fresh-faced innocent, a chain-smoking street-wise tough girl, a delicate Southern belle reminiscent of Blanche DuBois, a lovable granny, and a pyromaniac narcoleptic — all overseen by the tyrannical and overpowering Matron and her nefarious sidekick — these are the WOMEN BEHIND BARS!

Headlining the cast are pop culture icon Traci Lords as “Gloria” and RuPaul’s Drag Race fan-favorite star Eureka O’Hara as “The Matron,” the role made famous by the legendary Divine; RPDR and RPDR All-Stars personalities Ginger Minj as “Ada” and Chi Chi DeVayne as “Jo-Jo”; drag legend and star of Trick, Girls Will Be Girls, and Will and Grace, Miss Coco Peru as “Louise”; John Waters’ muse and star of Pink Flamingos, Serial Mom, Female Trouble, and Hairspray, Mink Stole as “Granny”; Los Angeles cabaret performer and star of Whatta Lark, Poppy Fields as “Blanche”; and internationally-renowned Marilyn Monroe tribute artist, Suzie Kennedy as “Cheri.” Also rounding out the cast is adult film superstar, Wesley Woods as “The Man”; Adrienne Couper Smith as “Mary”, the innocent who is ultimately corrupted by the system; and Tatiana Monteiro as the fiery Guadalupe.
