    incredible facility. Members of the general public are

    The film will consist of still images with narration.

    We are looking for people of all ages to participate.
    Everyone is welcome from acting troupes, teams, historical societies to the just plain curious.

    You will get to experience being on a set, and you'll get to travel back in time and get a real feeling for life in the cells in the early eighteenth century.

    Call time is 9:30 at the Gaol, Sunday 20th September.

    Dress code for volunteer actors:

    The film will showcase a day in the life of a cell during the early
    18th Century. During this period up to one hundred people were
    incarcerated in a cell. Fed once every four days, with no sanitation.
    Everybody was incarcerated together: both sexes,
    those awaiting trial, convicted murderers, rapists, the insane, children
    and even new born babies.
