Event description

Description

The Australia Council in partnership with Goolarri Media Enterprises is proud to present this quirky and heartwarming collaboration between folk popster, Lynn Hazelton and reggae queen, Lorrae Coffin.

A dusty folk tale based on Hazelton’s childhood as the “the cook’s daughter” on the iconic and isolated Melita Station. Set on gibber stone plains, surrounded by twisted mulga on the edge of the Goldfields, 10 year old Midge is annoying as she is small. Surviving eagle strike, mischievous willies and dastardly drought, she ‘gets her mosey on’ in her quest to be useful to all she encounters along the way.

The show opens to a long drought causing trouble on the land. People trying, stock dying and the never-ending dry stealing water and hope. But the wisdom of the Wongi and the unquenchable spirit of the ‘bally little nuisance’ live on, thriving through hard times with the help of an open mind, a box of matches and just a touch of humour. Midge tells how she goes bush with her mum hoping for a bed, but how she really wants a home, but how she ends up belonging anyway.

Two talented award winning musicians and lifelong sisters, Lynn and Lorrae, who had the honour of sharing their ‘southern mother’, combine their creative and humorous ways to bring you this little gem from the edge of the western desert – unmistakably Goldfields with a Kimberley twist. Enjoy!
