Original Tom Eyen’s Women Behind Bars Poster Divine Live On Stage Poster Circa 1977

Divine did the original stage performance, first in NYC then in Washington DC. According to Divine’s Site, she did the performance for a year from 1976-77 in the US and Europe. 

Plot:
“Set in the Women's House of Detention in Greenwich Village, there is, among the range of women, an innocent young woman, a chain-smoking street-wise tough girl, and a delicate Southern belle reminiscent of Blanche DuBois. The innocent was framed by her husband on a charge of armed robbery, and is brutalized, betrayed and sexually assaulted throughout her eight-year sentence. She is ultimately broken by the system and leaves jail as a hard-edged, gum-chomping drug dealer. These women are overseen by the prison's sadistic matron and her henchman.”
