LADIES DAY By Alana Valentine


  • SBW Stables Theatre 10 Nimrod Street Kings Cross NSW 2011

It’s Ladies Day at the Broome races and the divinely beautiful Mike is the toast of the track.  But amongst the froth and festivity, a brutal act of violence reminds us that life is not just all swishy hemlines, debonair gents and fascinators galore.

Alana Valentine is one of Australia’s best playwrights. Known for her incredibly successful verbatim works, she takes her interviews and research with individuals and communities, and mixes them with a healthy dose of drama. The result is powerful, thought-provoking theatre in which the voices of her protagonists ring absolutely true.

Alana spent months interviewing the gay community of Broome to create a play that asks questions about tolerance, isolation, love, hope and the right to have your story told. Griffin is proud to present the world premiere of Ladies Day -­ a vivid, richly evocative play with a big heart, directed by Darren Yap.

Ladies Day will be supported by Griffin’s ‘Production Partnerships Program’. Remarkable productions made possible through the support of individual donors.
