The story centres on the actions of Esther Woolcot, only 21 herself and the second wife of Captain Woolcot, who manages the brood of seven children.

Her loving care acts as a buffer when the Captain’s anger is raised by their outlandish behaviour.

The show will open on Thursday, June 14 at 6.30pm at La Salle Academy’s Bishop Patrick Dougherty Hall on Rabaul Street, Lithgow. 

A second show will be held on Friday night, June 15 at 6.30pm.
