Old fashioned melodrama to end the year

Lily, the Felon’s Daughter by Tom Taggart

Melodramas are an audience favourite and with Lily, the Felon's Daughter Maitland Repertory Theatre returns to end of year melodrama fun.

Lily, the Felon’s Daughter tells the story of our heroine Lily Fairweather, who is "pure as the driven snow" and of Compton, her weak but handsome sweetheart, and how the dastardly villain Craven Sinclair tries to thwart their plans for everlasting bliss.
