THE BRIDGE IS DOWN

• Large cast with largely female roles

The Bridge is Down is a light-hearted look at life in Australia in 1954, the year of the Royal Visit. A torrential downpour forces ten women (amongst them a private school debating team, a nun, a socialite, an actress) to take shelter in a shearing shed. Caught up in the optimism (or naivety) of the period their attitudes reflect the huge changes in Australian society since then.
