“The best Aussie musical since Priscilla went global”- Sydney Morning Herald
Sydney, 1959 - a city at the crossroads between the stuffy repression of the 1950s and the glorious liberation of the 1960s...
Bright-eyed, bookish school leaver Lisa steps through the doors of the city’s most prestigious department store, F.G. Goodes. A world of unknown possibilities opens up as she befriends the colourful denizens of the Ladies Cocktail Frocks Department – including her new mentor, the exotic Magda, mysterious mistress of Model Gowns.
With its irreverent humour and immense charm, Ladies in Black is a magical, modern-day fairy-tale sure to leave you singing long after you leave the theatre. Queensland Theatre Company has created a heartwarming adaptation of Madeleine St John’s popular 1993 novel, The Women in Black. Premiering in Brisbane in 2015, this sparkling production is the work of internationally-acclaimed director Simon Phillips (Priscilla Queen of the Desert, The Musical, Love Never Dies, First Wives Club) and writer Carolyn Burns, with original music by superstar Tim Finn (Split Enz, Crowded House).
