Rainbow’s End

Date: 2 Jul 2019

Written by Jane Harrison, Rainbow’s End is a First Nations story about the bond of family and the power of the land.

It’s the 1950s in Shepparton, Victoria. 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, who offers her the prospect of another world.  Together they embark on a journey of belonging where the search for a better life challenges the powerful bond that holds these women together.

Presented by Darlinghurst Theatre Company in association with Moogahlin Performing Arts, this production is directed by Liza-Mare Syron and features Frederick Copperwaite, Phoebe Grainer, Lily Shearer, Lincoln Vickery and Dalara Williams.
