The Sapphires
Redland Performing Arts Centre

Written and Directed by Tony Briggs

A brand-new production of the multi award-winning modern classic

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.

The Sapphires is a funny, heart-warming tale inspired by the true story of four Yorta Yorta women who sing classic 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 show is also packed with ‘60s favourites that will have you singing along and dancing in your seat including Respect, Heatwave, Stop! In The Name of Love, I Heard It Through the Grapevine and many more.

‘The Sapphires is a play about fulfilling dreams and challenging stereotypes. It is a play about hope.’ The Herald Sun

‘Energetic, passionate, heart wrenching, uplifting, hilarious and engaging.’ Australian Stage
