Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Memory is at the heart of 'Vertigo and the Virginia', as Caylam attempts to understand his mother's past, hoping it may hold clues to his difficult relationship with her. At Caylam's bidding, Ruth re-visits her childhood in Adaminaby, a small town flooded in 1957 as the site for a new dam. When Ruth's mother, Frances, befriends Voya, a refugee, the consequences are painful. But as the late twentieth century and the 1950s collide to expose the secrets submerged with the town, each of the characters discover that memory is the only path to redemption. (2 male, 2 female). The Farrows and the Broadfoots rub elbows over more than half a century, laughing as much as they cry, trying to make sense of a tangled heritage and their long association with the idiosyncratic world of the Brisbane Markets. This epic tale charts their loves and losses with great humour and sensitivity. Winner of the inaugural Queensland Premier's Drama Award, 'Road to the She-Devil's Salon' is a saga of three generations of two families living much of their private lives in a public place. (4 male, 4 female).
