Ladies in Black - Melbourne


  • Melbourne Reagent Theatre (map)

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 has created a heartwarming adaptation of Madeleine St John’s popular 1993 novel, The Women in Black.
