Bertin and Hannah
National Trust

It is 1899, Mrs Hannah Bryden, the picture of respectable widowhood, has lived alone in her sprawling mansion for the past few years. She enjoys nothing save for the occasional company of her dressmaker, the flamboyant and sharp tongued Mr. Bertin.

But when massive advances in the fashion industry jeopardize Bertin’s livelihood, he hatches a plan to save both of them from obscurity. Hannah must come out of her widow’s blacks and launch herself once more as one of Melbourne’s leading socialites at an upcoming masquerade ball, clad in the most jaw-dropping fashion statement Bertin has ever attempted.

An entertaining historical story of two unlikely allies, propelling each other towards purpose and the spark of life, even as old age creeps upon them.

"The Dress is a heart-warming historical play that is definitely worth seeing . . . you won't be disappointed." Theatre Travels
