When Brisbane visual artist Emma Lee is commissioned to construct a public art piece in Charters Towers for the Centenary celebrations, she is inspired by notorious vagrants Annie Bags and Tiptoe Jen, from the town’s gold mining past. When Emma discovers that Tiptoe had mysteriously disappeared, she becomes convinced that Charters Towers’ elderly respected sisters, Winsome, Ruby and Dot, know what happened to her. Emma’s quest to discover the truth leads her into dangerous waters, as these three sisters are not what they seem.
The world premier of Tiptoe was produced by JUTE at the JUTE Theatre, Cairns and opened on Friday 4 July.
