The Hope Song – A play by Janet Brown
In this honest and moving new play, souls are bared by seven actors who take us on a journey that attests to the enduring power of hope and offers fascinating insights into the people whose portraits make up The Hope Song. The play has returned because it was so well received and comes highly recommended by one of our members who saw it earlier this year at La Mama in Carlton.
The Courthouse Theatre is near Geelong Station. We plan to take the train departing from Southern Cross Station at 10.30 am, enjoy a picnic lunch together and see ‘Song of Hope’ at 2.30 pm.
We thank Alfred Health Carer Services for fully funding our theatre tickets.

Exact time of film to be advised.
From Academy Award® nominated director Bruce Beresford comes the comedy drama Ladies in Black, based on Madeleine St John’s best-selling novel, The Women in Black.
Set in the summer of 1959, when the impact of European migration and the rise of women’s liberation is about to change Australia forever, Lisa, aged sixteen, takes a holiday job at the prestigious Sydney department store, Goode’s. There she meets the “ladies in black”, when she is assigned to assist sales ladies Patty and Fay.
Beguiled and influenced by Magda, the vivacious manager of the high-fashion boutique Model Gowns, Lisa is awakened to a world of possibilities. As she grows from a bookish schoolgirl into a glamorous and positive young woman, the impact they have on each other will change all their lives.
Starring: Julia Ormond, Angourie Rice, Rachael Taylor, Ryan Corr, Shane Jacobson, Susie Porter, Alison McGirr, Noni Hazlehurst and Vincent Perez
