AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Step back in time to The Home Front, a piece of improvised theatre exploring the lives of women in Australia during the Great War. Away from the battlefields of WWI we follow three women over the course of a month in a small Australian country town. The piece raises issues of resilience, women\'s liberation and relationships between women in community. One hundred years on are we so different from these women? Come and share the laughter and the tears and discover how one war changed individuals as well as a nation. ' (Production summary)
