Meet Sybylla Melvyn – a young woman on the verge of everything – hope, loss, freedom and the search for independence – determined, above all else, to break down the barriers keeping her from both, My Brilliant Career is a glorious love letter to language, and a homage to life.
Adapted and directed by Christine Davey, My Brilliant Career features Madeleine Swain, Molly England, Simon Carroll, Dominic Westcott, Lanny Ryan, Ali Cruickshank, Mary Steuten, Ryan Tracey and Paula Kontelj in a joyous production that sings and dances into the heart and mind.
Playing over 60 characters, these nine incredible actors and musicians create a magical and maniacal romp through Australian landscape and literature.
“This is not a romance. I have too often faced the music of life to the tune of hardship to waste time gushing over fancies and dreams.”
