Adapted from the book THE WOMEN IN BLACK by Madeleine St John.

LADIES IN BLACK is an optimistic romantic comedy of manners set in the ladies' cocktail section of F. G. Goode, a department store in 1950s Sydney. Madeleine St John cleverly dramatises the meeting of conservative Anglo-Saxon Aussies with European migrants who opened them to sophisticated attitudes, cultural experiences, and romance.
