The cast for the concept album is made up of Kody Mortimer as The Prison Guard/The Husband, Melanie Bright as Suzette Labouche, Lois Morgan Gay as Polly Barton, Joely Barbour as Camilla Cologne and Amelia Treble as Trixie Talltower and Becca Sharp as Jane Down.

Beyond dead husbands, the women of cell 7A have very little in common. On the bright side, a life sentence leaves a lot of time to talk. Join them, and their new cell mate, as they relive their lives, share their secrets… and confess their crimes. Five women. Five stories. One cell. It’s time to meet the Black Widows.

Black Widows The Musical is raw, immersive, powerful – as funny as it is evocative.

This dark comedy musical aims to go beyond the call of entertaining audiences and instead seeks to empower women all across the U.K. to start the fight back against domestic abuse.
