Drug trafficking in Southeast Asia is no laughing matter, just ask Schapelle Corby.

But two years after she was deported from Bali after nearly ten years behind bars for marijuana smuggling, a new comic musical about Schapelle's prison nightmare premieres.

The musical, entitled & # 39; Schapelle, Schapelle & # 39 ;, documents the arrest, trial and conviction of the Queensland woman in Kerobokan prison in tongue-in-cheek fashion.

Kelsi Boyden, who plays Schapelle in theater production, told New idea that the show does not put the Corby family in a & # 39; bad light & # 39; paints.

She said: & We tell it very honestly and I think she would love it … We would love it if the Corbys would see it. We reached to Schapelle (but) heard nothing in return. & # 39;

Kelsi explained that she sympathizes with Schapelle and understands that her arrest and the subsequent media circus are a & # 39; really difficult time & # 39; was for the whole family.

In a new idea, Schapelle & # 39; s older sister Mercedes confirmed that neither she nor her family would look at the musical.

She said: & # 39; Our family has gone through a nightmare and it can be difficult for us, especially Schapelle, to relive it all. But we try to ignore things that make our experience ridiculous.

& # 39; We just heard about the show and although we can laugh at ourselves, we won't see it because it's in Sydney. & # 39;
