Ladies in Black

Season 4 2019: 7th – 23rd November, Matinees: Sundays 10 & 17 & Sat 23 November

​A musical - Book by Carolyn Burns, Music and Lyrics by Tim Finn, Based on Madeleine St John’s novel, The Women in Black, Directed by Alan Burrows

By special arrangement with David Spicer Productions

This musical is set in Sydney in 1959, a city caught between the stuffy repression of the 50’s and the glorious liberation of the 60’s. It tells the story of bright-eyed, bookish school leaver Lisa who joins the sales staff of the city’s most prestigious department store, F.G. Goodes, where she finds her world opening to exciting new possibilities as she befriends the colourful characters of the Ladies Frocks Department – including her new mentor, the exotic Magda. With its irreverent humour and great charm, Ladies in Black is a magical fairy-tale sure to leave you singing long after you leave the theatre.
