Ladies in Black
July 8 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm| $25
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.
