Garage Girls

Next date: Friday, 26 July 2024 | 07:00 PM to 08:10 PM


Alice Anderson and her All Girl Garage are coming to town!

Imagine…1920’s Melbourne - the advent of the motorcar!

Society reels from the aftermath of war and a second wave of Spanish flu wreaks havoc on the streets. Theatres buzz with vaudeville hacks and men with an eye for enterprise seize every opportunity to weasel wealth. Meanwhile, one small woman defies convention and makes her mark.

Meet Alice Anderson. Mechanic. Trailblazer. Entrepreneur.

Part history, part farce, part who-done-it, Garage Girls shines a light on one remarkable young woman’s short but eventful life. Who was Alice Anderson? Why did she drive her baby Austin all the way to Alice Springs? Who were all those women, dressed in greasy dungarees…and don’t they look a little bit like men? Inspired by actual events and realised for theatre with a healthy dose of magic realism, breathtaking sound design and many colourful characters, played by five actors - Garage Girls is a rollicking ride celebrating a Victorian icon.

Welcome to Miss Anderson’s All Girl Garage!
