A funny, heart-warming tale, The Sapphires is inspired by the true story of writer Tony Brigg’s mother. Four country music-loving Aboriginal women get the chance to change their tune and sing soulful Motown hits, against the backdrop of social upheaval and personal change – armed only with microphones they sing in hope of inspiring momentary joy amongst the troubles of the Vietnam War.
Their incredible journey is one of Australia’s most loved tales, having won multiple awards as a play, film and soundtrack album – but Brigg’s promises that this version to be the most intimate and fulfilling yet. See this raw, feel-good story for one night only at Cessnock Performing Arts Centre.
