A real treat …..a clear hit to the packed audience” stagewhispers.com.au
Weaving together the life and poetry of CJ Dennis with the narration of WW1 nurse Madge Yeatman, “Of Auburn” stirs emotions through theatre, poetry, personal testimony, live music and digitally enhanced images to tell the stories of Dennis and the women of World War I.
Lisa Harper Campbell (The Double Bass, Watchlist) directs Nic Conway (Abbott! The Musical) who “is funny, poignant and entrancing to watch” and Clare Mansfield (ANZAC Girls) who “is convincing, as she switches from nurse to nurse, cleverly painting their stories as vivid verbal images.” Music from Minnie Little with “beautiful vocals in French, telling stories from women’s perspectives of war, float through the room with crystal clear accompaniment on piano and cello” – Stage Whispers.
“Of Auburn” premiered in September 21 in Auburn, the birthplace of Madge Yeatman and CJ Dennis and will be return to the Midnorth as part of Fringe 2022, with a performance in Gawler.
In 2022, The Fringe Festival will attract a greater number of visitors from Interstate and Country SA, encouraging tourism in Adelaide during the summer months.
The performances will take place in the heart of the City and potentially attract new visitors to Adelaide and encourage accommodation and future return visits.
