Presented by Bourke & Heather
In Melbourne 1853, a summer storm is testing the newly sprouted tent city that resides along the Yarra River. Robert, a worker at the port, takes pity on a young lad seeking shelter under a cart. Offering him a place to stay and the possibility of a job in the morning. They are now the only friend each other has on the continent, but friendship is a tall order when you can’t tell each other who you really are.
This fictional tale is based on the written accounts of women through the 1800’s.
With the help of staff from Ballarat Museum, Sovereign Hill, rumors about women were used as leads to uncover incredible stories of women breaking from traditional expectation. Excited by these stories the creators have put together a 30 minute performance that merges story with post dramatic elements to leave audiences with a new understanding of woman and her place in Australian history.
