Melting Moments

Anna Goldsworthy / Olivia Beardsley
It is 1941. Eighteen-year-old Ruby leaves behind the family farm her serious mother and roguish father and heads for Adelaide. After a brief courtship she enters into a hasty marriage with a soldier about to go to war - who returns a changed man. With an eyebrow pencil in one hand and gardening shears in the other Ruby navigates the years doing her duty as a woman contending with her damaged husband and eccentric in-laws allowing marriage and motherhood to fill her with purpose and pleasure - and only occasionally wondering is this all there is? MELTING MOMENTS recreates the Adelaide and Melbourne of half a century ago bringing a family to life as they move through the decades challenging and caring for and loving one another often in surprising ways.
