Stella Wild, MBA, Rosemary Adams, JD/MBA, Linda Robertson, M.D.,Ph.D., and Beth Ziegler, MBA, have some things in common. Besides being educated, successful, professional women, they also share the same address. It isn't a swanky high rise apartment building or a beachfront condo - they reside at the Delaware Valley Federal Correctional Facility, a low-level security prison for white and "pink" collar criminals.

Stella Wild, MBA, Rosemary Adams, JD/MBA, Linda Robertson, M.D.,Ph.D., and Beth Ziegler, MBA, have some things in common. Besides being educated, successful, professional women, they also share the same address. It isn't a swanky high rise apartment building or a beachfront condo - they reside at the Delaware Valley Federal Correctional Facility, a low-level security prison for white and "pink" collar criminals. With the Warden in one pocket and their cell block guard in another, the "Divas" continue to indulge their lavish and luxurious lifestyles until Beth is prematurely released and a murderess moves in to her place. Adding insult to injury, the Department of Corrections has announced its intention to close the Delval facility due to mismanagement and relocate inmates to the less-than-glamorous Black Rock Federal Prison. How do the Divas save Delval, solve a murder and reunite on a Roman holiday? Who ever said that crime doesn't pay?
"The plot creates a magnetic pull on the audience, drawing them in bit by tiny bit through different scenes and three acts...Weber has done a masterful job of keeping the viewer's interest in an entertaining and mirthful way, with elements of pathos thrown into the mix from time to time." The Review, Philadelphia, PA

"Jailhouse divas rock.." "Life behind bars never looked so good with Delval Divas" Pacifica Tribune, California

Delval Divas was first produced at The Old Academy in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in September 2005. Since then, it has been performed in theaters and schools across the USA.
