A new production of Australia's beloved modern classic, written and directed by Tony Briggs with a talented young ensemble.

About this event

The Sapphires is a heart-warming tale inspired by the true story of Tony Briggs’ mother. Set in 1968 during landmark changes to Aboriginal rights, it tells the story of a singing group of four young Yorta Yorta women, discovered by a talent scout at St Kilda’s Tiki Club. He convinces them to tour Vietnam to sing classic soul songs for the troops and it becomes a life-altering trip to the depths of war and back again.

Whilst The Sapphires explores issues such as race, prejudice and pleas for acceptance, it is an energetic and engaging play that affirms life and the realisation of dreams.
