About this event

Ireland's Magdalene Laundries for 'fallen women' became infamous around the world following revelations of coercion, exploitation and the discovery of the mass graves of children. These institutions also operated in Australia. These are the stories of Melbourne's Magdalenes, explored through theatre and song.

Presented by:
Scrambled Prince Theatre Company

Scrambled Prince is a touring youth theatre company based in Melbourne. We have performed in festivals throughout the East Coast of Australia and at the Adelaide Fringe since 1998. Recent productions include "Alcestis", "Gretel", "What we learned at the big school" and "How came that blood". Our shows are devised ensemble pieces using movement, music and non naturalistic theatre styles to tell our stories.
