Ladies in Black

LADIES IN BLACK

The Tasmanian premiere of the heartwarming musical adaptation of Madeleine St John’s popular 1993 novel, The Women in Black.

Sydney, the late 1950s: the city swelters in stuffy repression, longing for the cool, glorious liberation just around the corner. Bright-eyed, bookish school leaver Lisa steps through the doors of the city’s most prestigious department store, F.G. Goodes. A world of unknown possibilities opens up as she befriends the colourful denizens of the Ladies Cocktail Frocks Department – including her new mentor, the exotic Magda, mysterious mistress of Model Gowns.

With its irreverent humour and immense charm, Ladies in Black is a magical, modern-day fairy tale sure to leave you singing long after you leave the theatre.
