Tasmania bail out

 

Overview

The Melbourne bail out experience is dramatic in nature with dozens of actors, comedians and volunteers playing various theatrical roles to give inmates an interactive experience.

The experience exposes inmates to life on the inside with experiences that simulate prison life. Upon arrival, inmates will be stripped of possessions, fingerprinted, photographed and shunned into the main exercise yard where they will be fed prison gruel. Inmates will face a judiciary and have their cases heard in the Old Magistrate's Court before being sentenced to some cell time. Tassie Convicts must raise a minimum of $1,500 (per person) to secure their release.

Upon release, inmates will be escorted to the parole party to celebrate with friends, family and colleagues.
