Rainbow's End

An inspiring story of hope and resilience from Australia’s First Peoples.

Set against the Queen’s visit in the 1950s, acclaimed playwright Jane Harrison (Stolen) pens a tender and funny telling of one family’s struggle for community acceptance.

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, whose offer of another world sees their lives take an unexpected turn.

“[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.
