The Highlands Theatre Group is producing an exciting new play by Irish author Jaki McCarrick, Belfast Girls. This is the first time the play has been produced by an Australian Theatre Company.
Escaping the Irish famine in 1850 five young women seek passage on a ship to Australia. For many of the ‘orphan girls’ on board, the voyage offers a fresh start. But some girls find they cannot escape the memory of the lives they’ve left behind – and that the closer they get to Australia the more powerful the past becomes.
