After the sell-out success of The Sapphires last year, Christine Anu returns to the Frankston Arts Centre to star in Rainbow’s End on 10 and 11 May.
Set in 1950’s country Australia
, Rainbow’s End is a genuine ‘feel good’ night in the theatre written
by the author of Stolen, Jane Harrison
, and directed by multi-award winner
Christine Anu stars
alongside Lillian Crombie and Chenoa Deemal as three generations of Koori
women – Nan Dear, her feisty daughter Gladys (Anu) and Dolly,
her clever teenage granddaughter – living in a shack on a flood prone riverbank.
When Gladys takes on buying the Encyclopaedia Britannica from city salesman Errol Fisher to improve Dolly’s chances, their lives take an unexpected and challenging turn.
from the Daily Telegraph
in Sydney wrote: “This is a warm, genuine and engaging drama that allows us to experience a neglected part of Australia’s social history.”
