RAINBOW'S END

Jane Harrison

 

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.
