Written and Directed by Tony Briggs
The Sapphires is an award-winning musical play based on the remarkable true story of writer Tony Briggs’ mother.
One of Australia’s best-loved stories, The Sapphires has won multiple awards as a play, film and soundtrack album. For this special national tour, writer Tony Briggs will direct his work in a version he promises will be the most intimate telling of the story yet.
Set in the 1960s against the backdrop of personal change and massive social upheaval, four young Yorta Yorta women are given the opportunity to change their tune, and their lives. Wearing sequins and armed only with microphones and their powerhouse voices, the talented singers find themselves trying to spread joy in the hell that is the Vietnam War.
This heart-warming Australian classic has it all - comedy, heart and romance together with unbeatable soul music.
"Energetic, passionate, heartwrenching, uplifting, hilarious and engaging"
