Pioneers in Petticoats to life four charismatic colonial Australia women. First Fleet convict Mary Bryant escaped the colony in an open board while child pioneer Eliza Hawkins travelled on a bullock dray to Bathurst. Fanny Macleay, the eldest of six unmarried daughters, was an unsung scientist, and Lola Montes performed her famous Spider Dance at the Ballarat goldfields.

This world premiere of Pioneers in Petticoats stars Australian stage and screen actress Bridgid O’Sullivan. In it you will meet four inspiring women who helped shape today’s Australia.
