What's On

Rainbow's End by Jane Harrison
 

Produced by Darlinghurst Theatre Company in association with Moogahlin Performing Arts. 

An inspiring story of hope and resilience from Australia’s First Peoples. 

Set against the Queen’s visit in the 1950’s, acclaimed playwright, Jane Harrison (Stolen), pens a tender and funny telling of one family’s struggle for community acceptance in the Menzies era of Australia. 

Three generations of the Dear family live together in a rundown shack on the Goulburn River flats.Gladys yearns for a better life, a real home and a decent job. Her teenage daughter Dolly has dreams of becoming a nurse, while her resilient grandmother, Nan Dears, is resistant to change. Dolly falls for Errol, a travelling salesman, whose offer of another world sees their lives take an unexpected turn. 

“[Rainbow’s End] quietly makes its point, leaving you aware and impressed by the staunchness of these women, the gains they made and the dignity with which they dealt with hardship” – Sydney Morning Herald

Beautifully crafted, elegantly scripted… “ – Australian Stage

“ A touching pot of theatrical gold…”- The Examiner
