10 years after the national tour of Riverside’s 2011 production of Rainbow’s End, you and your students will now have the chance to stream the archival footage of the production to your very own classrooms through our On Demand archival recording for a strictly limited time.

Three generations of Koori women live on the edge of a country town in a shack on the banks of a flood prone river. For Nan, even life on “The Flats” represents progress of a kind, but Gladys has ambitions for a real house in town and a proper job for daughter Dolly. Set against the Queen’s visit in 1954 with music that evokes the period, this tender, funny play celebrates the fierce optimism of the women as they struggle for community acceptance in Menzies’ era Australia. Rainbow’s End was written with gentle irony and humorous affection by Jane Harrison, author of Stolen and flawlessly directed by Craig Ilott.

This production will be available On Demand, streaming until 30 June 2021 only. 

Please Note: this archival will be Closed Captioned 

Recommended for ages 13+ and years 9 – 12.
