Hobart, Tasmania, 1894.
From the mouldering cells of Port Arthur to the sun-dappled grounds of Wintersleigh House, Breakfast at Midnight analyses the expectations placed on young people by family members and by society as a whole. It also explores the polarised society of the mid 1890's, a time when trenchant Victorian conservatism and burgeoning feminist ideals seemed increasingly incompatible.
