Set in the dying days of 1965, the play pulls no punches is showing how difficult it was growing up in a small town where racial intolerance was the tone of the day and the grind of daily boredom was never far away.

Lysa and the Freeborn Dames Theatre Review

Three angelic women (Barbara Lowing, Roxanne McDonald and Hsiao-Ling Tang) play host and impart words of wisdom to both actor and audience.

The play also gives key scenes more than one point of view, often times replaying a scenario with dramatically different outcomes. This gives the audience the ability to ...

Letters to Lindy coming to the Brisbane Powerhouse!

Filled with humour and heartbreak, this stunning work by award-winning playwright Alana Valentine (Parramatta Girls, Head Full of Love) explores the public’s relationship with one of 20th Century Australia’s most iconic figures,  Lindy Chamberlain.

The media circus, the rumours, the mob ...
