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.
