"Ross manages to capture and present wrenching sorrow jutted up against the playfulness of youth." - LA Times

The teenage girls of Warrenville Prison are not your average delinquents. Having "graduated" from juvie to prison, these are the kids most likely to remain in the correctional system their whole lives. They are also some of the sharpest and most irrepressible young women you'll meet. When the girls of this heartland Illinois prison are given a most unlikely shot at redemption— the chance to tell their own stories in a musical based on their lives— they're challenged to re-live the events that led up to their crimes, reclaim their humanity, and find their own exuberant voices in a first step toward breaking free from the prison system.
