Kate Leigh – The Worst Woman in Sydney
Presented by Adelaide Festival Centre

World Premiere; Adelaide Exclusive

107 criminal convictions, 13 stretches in gaol, grog dealer and purveyor of cocaine; was Kate Leigh really the ‘worst woman in Sydney?’

From the 1920s to the 1940s the newspapers had plenty to say about Australia’s most notorious matriarch, but in this powerful and sassy performance Libby O’Donovan revisits the myths surrounding the criminal mastermind. Weaving story with song she casts a bright new light on Leigh’s fierce and fabulous life.
