10 Aug to 7 Sep
A scrumptious coming-of-age musical set in the 1950s, Ladies in Black returns to Brisbane in this brand-new production.
When Lisa Miles, a bright and bookish young ingénue joins the staff of a luxurious inner-city department store, she faces the fierce challenges of a working woman in a world of slow change. But through the sweltering Sydney summer, surrounded by the colourful staff of the women's clothing department, Lisa inches towards liberating times.
Charming and full of humour, Ladies in Black is a modern-day Australian fairy tale, based on the book by legendary Carolyn Burns and featuring music by acclaimed Tim Finn.
