Tuesday 26th February
Four young Aboriginal women from regional Australia, who like singing country music, suddenly get the chance to change their tune and their lives. Wearing uniforms of sequins, armed only with microphones they find themselves trying to spread joy in the hell that is the Vietnam War.
THE SAPPHIRES is a funny, heart-warming tale inspired by the true story of writer Tony Brigg's mother. It tells of the incredible journey of a singing group of four Yorta Yorta Women, who sing Motown soul hits against the backdrop of personal change and massive social upheaval.It is an energetic, fun and engaging play that affirms life and the realisation of dreams.
THE SAPPHIRES is one of Australia's best-loved stories. Winning multiple awards as a play, film and soundtrack album, there was one challenge left and that was to undertake a national tour of Australia.THE SAPPHIRES bring the raw energy, fun and emotion of this story directly to stages like Cessnock Performing Arts Centre and across the nation.
Writer Tony Briggs will direct his work in a version he promises will be the most intimate telling of THE SAPPHIRES story yet."I hope the audience will feel a fresh sense of connection to a story that has already successfully infiltrated the psyche of the Australian theatre and movie going public," says Briggs. "I hope they get a sense of joy and understanding of who Aboriginal people are and walk away from The Sapphires with a smile on their faces."
'This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.'
