About the Show:
This piece is set in Perth, 1953.
The war is over. Stalin is dead. Queen Elizabeth II comes to the throne. Polish post-war migrant, Anna Bakowski, is housekeeper for Australian ex serviceman, Tom Johnson. Anna is paid a visit by local parishioners, Betty Brown and Margaret Wilson. Tensions rise and truths are revealed as Margaret and Tom’s pasts intersect. Is the war truly over?
CHARACTERS – please note ages are stage ages.
BETTY BROWN. 55 to 65. A gossip. A bigot. Hypocritical. Nosey. Her ignorance shows. Puts on airs and graces.
MARGARET WILSON. Around 40. War widow. Mother of three. Broad Australian accent. Warm. Friendly. Aussie battler type. Hides her pain.
ANNA BAKOWSKI. Mid 30s. Polish. Speaks softly with an accent. Still dealing with her past.
TOM JOHNSON. Around 40. Traumatised from his wartime experiences. Unpredictable. Tough exterior.
Applicants will be asked to cold read from the script.
