The Sapphires

 

Written and Directed by Tony Briggs

The Sapphires is one of Australia’s best-loved stories. The multiple award- winning musical, that inspired the film, is coming to Griffith Regional Theatre for the first time.

Four young Aboriginal women from regional Australia, who love singing country music, suddenly get the chance to change their tune and their lives. Wearing sequins and smiles, and armed only with microphones, they find themselves spreading joy in the hell that is the Vietnam War.
 
The Sapphires is a funny, heart-warming tale inspired by the true story of Tony Briggs' mother – the incredible journey of four Yorta Yorta Women, who sing Motown 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.
