The Torrents by Oriel Gray 

From 23 November to 3 December at Mill Theatre at Dairy Road, Fyshwick ACT 2609

In an Australian screwball comedy, an all female cast takes us back to the 1890s Australia where a local newspaper must accept a woman in the workforce. Oriel Gray is one of Australia’s best yet least celebrated playwrights. Set in a gold mining district ‘The Torrents’ is a witty and engaging play with themes that are as relevant now as when it was written 70 years ago. This 67 seat, intimate theatre has just been built by the Molonglo Group and is the first private enterprise theatre in the ACT. The Torrents is the first production for this independently run venue. Cast and creatives are paid and some members are part of the shadow-emerge-mentoree program which provides training for time. We don't yet know what this space will be, but we can promise that it ain't like Netflix. 

The museum helped the production team to understand the early newspaper printing technologies in Australia.
