Published in Contemporary Indigenous Plays

Set in the 1950s in the northern Victorian area of Shepparton and Mooroopna, Rainbow's End by Jane Harrison creates a "thought-provoking and emotionally powerful" (The Age) snapshot of a Koori family. "The basic story is about three generations of aboriginal women living on the flats beside the river, living in a humpy. There’s Nan Dear, her daughter Gladys and then the granddaughter, Gladys daughter, Dolly" (Jane Harrison, playwright).

The play dramatises their struggle for decent housing, meaningful education, jobs and community acceptance.
