The Screen Guide

This series follows a group of hardened ex-prisoners as they’re challenged to perform a play called The Chocolate Frog, which was written by one of Australia's most violent criminals, Jim McNeil, while he was serving 17 years in Parramatta Gaol. Guided by coach Grant Thompson, the group will be challenged to put on the play inside the place it was written: Parramatta Gaol. Tension will be high, as Grant has just 10 weeks to get these Shakespearean wannabes ready to pull off the most credible and inspiring performance of their lives.
