Women of Their Word Matinee Performance

Concert or Performance

28 Mar 2021 Annual Event

Women of Their Word is a celebration of Australian women poets, writers who captured their times and their experiences in verse that still delights lovers of language.

Written by Jan Nary as a series of individual vignettes interwoven with music from Donna Magrath, Women of Their Word brings to life five notable women –  Maybanke Anderson, Dorothy Hewett, Judith Wright, Leona Kyling and Dame Mary Gilmore – who found their muse, their solace, and their power in poetry.  Through a blend of narrative and verse, a series of vignettes offers insights into the women behind the words; what inspired them, the challenges they faced and the contribution they made to Australia’s emerging cultural identity.  

The theatre is air-conditioned for your comfort and there will be a cash bar to purchase drinks.
Please Note:  Seating for this event will be allocated after bookings have closed and will be based on the order of booking e.g. first to book will be assigned Row A and so forth.
