Post Office Rose by Linda Hassall


THEMES: Ageing, Murder, Rural Townships, Rural Australia
LENGTH: 1.5 Hours
CAST SIZE: 3 – 4 Cast Members

“… a play of passion, loyalty, betrayal and bitterness that will leave you gasping at its conclusion.” – 612 ABC Radio,..


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.

"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."
