THE MOURNING AFTER

by Verity Laughton

A warm, and richly comic evocation of a woman’s life and choices set in context of Australian theatrical history. Belle Doyle, a performer in both radio serials and the Australian musicals of the 50s, is alone on Christmas Day on an Australian beach. She has just buried her husband, Harry Doyle, a one-time comic dancer turned very serious bank manager. She has just had the kind of offer that it is hard to refuse, yet has to fight both her own guilt – how and why did Harry die? – and the shades of her family – persons who possess almost too much life energy – to make a decision that could bring her back to the centre of her own story.
