Forgotten for decades inside a mental hospital, three women escape their present by remembering their past. In the asylum's hair salon, to the strains of Rick Astley and Glenn Miller, they relive wartime affairs, illicit trysts and childhood secrets. Total Theatre Award winner at the 2008 Edinburgh Fringe, The Idiot Colony is inspired by true accounts of the treatment and incarceration of 'moral defectives' in 1940s England.
