The Sapphires is one of Australia’s best-loved stories. This multiple award-winning musical play, that inspired the film, is coming to the Shed for the first time. Four young Aboriginal women from regional Australia, who like singing country music, suddenly get the chance to change their tune and their lives.
Wearing sequins and armed only with
microphones, they find themselves trying to spread joy in the hell that is the Vietnam War.
A gem of a play. Briggs mixes fact and fiction to lay bare and flesh out his celebratory tale which, though political in patches, is focused on the personal. The Sapphires is heartfelt and joyous. Superb. ~ Bryce Hallett, Sydney Morning Herald
