New Australian Play to premiere in October

The writer Miles Franklin returns to Sydney in 1932 after years in Chicago and London.  Frustrated by living with her elderly mother, a lack of money and still striving for acceptance, she is desperate to reignite the height of fame she reached with My Brilliant Career when she was only twenty.

 Hope glimmers when she meets the mercurial publisher Inky Stephensen and joins his ultra-patriotic Yabber Club of writers and thinkers passionate for Australians to embrace their own culture – not the British kind. As war gathers in Europe, the group segues into the fascist-leaning Australia First movement that looks to Hitler’s Germany as a model for strong leadership.
