Pioneer in Petticoats Performance at Eskbank House and Museum

Eskbank House and Museum will be hosting the colonial play “Pioneers in Petticoats”, a one woman performance that brings to life four amazing Australian colonial women, on Saturday 30 May 2015 from 2.00pm to 6.00pm.

“Drama is a wonderful way of bringing history to life so there is no better setting for this play than our own historic Eskbank House,” said Lithgow City Council Mayor Maree Statham. “I enjoyed Wendy Blaxland’s play Crossings in 2013 very much so know we are assured of a entertaining performance for all ages this time too.”

Written and produced by Blaxland and Daughter of Crossings  fame, all the roles in this production are played by  actress Brigid O’Sullivan. The play features the lives of four inspiring, colonial women from the First Fleet to the Gold Fields who helped shape today’s Australia. Being performed in the colonial Eskbank House gives real context to these amazing stories

Tickets cost $24 for all ages and can be booked by calling 4730 6932 or online at www.tickets4me.com.au. Tickets are also available for purchase at the Lithgow Visitor Information Centre on 1300 760 276.
