The Proud and The Punished is a one-woman performance that is centred around Sarah Mason, a petty criminal who rails against the system of punishment and redemption inside the prison walls at the Cascades Female Factory.
The tale of tragedy and triumph is brought to life with a 40 minute dramatised tour in Yard 1 of the Female Factory. Sarah’s story is a compilation of historical accounts of women at the female factory who experienced incredible hardships; assignment, pregnancy and punishment.
This journey shares with visitors the strength of character and that many women at the female factory were able to rise above the hardship.
The Proud and the Punished is performed Thursday, Friday, Sunday and Monday at 12.00pm.
