The Idiot Colony
  • Play
  • A play about three female members living in a mental institution who spend their time reminiscing about the past.

    Three women have spent decades wandering the wards and corridors of THE IDIOT COLONY. Locked away for their illicit loves, they relive their faltering memories amidst the drugs, brutality and restraints of the Asylum.

    THE IDIOT COLONY is a tragicomic exposé of the forced incarceration of young women in mental asylums during the 1940's and 1950's for crimes ranging from illegitimate pregnancy to lesbianism, anti-social behaviour, being abused, even for being considered 'too promiscuous' or 'flirtatious'.
