Published with Parramatta Girls
The inmates of The Girls Training School, Parramatta had about as hard an upbringing as you can get in Australia. But theirs is also one of the great untold stories of making good in tough times.
Chronicles the experience of girls sent from Parramatta Girls Home to the Hay Girls Home for even more brutal, punitive treatment. Written to be played by young adults, this moving work emphasises the childish vulnerability of the inmates in a world where they must find connection with each other in order to to survive. Artfully woven with movement, chorus work and poetry, it is a compelling companion work to Parramatta Girls.
