THE PROMISED WOMAN

by Theodore Patrikareas

Published in Plays of the 60s: Volume 1

Possibly the first play by a post-war immigrant staged in Australia, The Promised Woman has also been produced in Greece. Set in a boarding house in Sydney's inner city suburb of Newtown, it captures the dislocation and problems of immigration as it tells the story of a strong young woman who finds a way to break free of traditional constraints.
