Rainbow's End

Rainbow's End

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.

In this powerful and tender story, where dreams for a fair go lie, acclaimed playwright, Jane Harrison, pens one family’s struggle for community acceptance in the Menzies era of Australia.

 “[Rainbow’s End] quietly makes its point, leaving you aware and impressed by the staunchness of these women, the gains they made and the dignity with which they dealt with hardship” – Sydney Morning Herald

Beautifully crafted, elegantly scripted… “ – Australian Stage

“ A touching pot of theatrical gold…”- The Examiner
