Post Office Rose is the name of a terrible Patsy Cline cover band. Now the members are all grown up, and they have some serious scores to settle with one another. Set in a rural township, three women reunite who are as tough as the pigslaughtering landscape in which they grew up.

Not for the faint-hearted. Gripping, visceral, shocking and twisted.

Production History

Post Office Rose’s premier season was at the Metro Arts in 2003. It then was remounted at La Boite Theatre in 2007.

Published alongside Magda’s Fascination with Wax Cats by Maxine Mellor, The Knowing of Mary Poppins by Marcel Dorner, Leah Mercer et al, and Harriers by Marcel Dorney in the collection Independent Brisbane: Four Plays

ISBN 9780908156696


"In a wonderfully crafted script from Brisbane playwright and theatre identity Linda Hassall, the ghost of Patsy Cline presides over this day of reckoning as the women sing the old songs and say and do what they have long been waiting to do to each other."
