Date: 21 Jul 1983 – 21 Aug 1983
‘HERSTORY – labour of love, pain and laughter’ represents a major dramatic experience, a recapturing of women, stories, facts and events lost from Australia’s history from the 1890’s to today. HERSTORY is lively and fast entertainment, a sound and image kaleidoscope of music, old broadcasts and hundreds of images and anecdotes of women.
A celebration of the lives of everyday Australian women from 1900 to 1984. Performed at the Maverston St. Hall in August 1983 as an extension to the WOMEN OF THREE GENERATIONS Project. Reviewed favourably by daily and local press, we consider HERSTORY a fine example of the process of local research for community theatre.
