The Sapphires

Concert or Performance

10 Oct 2019 to 12 Oct 2019

The Sapphires is one of Australia’s best-loved stories. This multiple award-winning musical play that inspired the film is coming to Hobart for the first time.
Four young Aboriginal women from regional Australia, who like singing country music, suddenly get the chance to change their tune and their lives. Wearing sequins and armed only with microphones they find themselves trying to spread joy in the hell that is the Vietnam War.
The Sapphires is a funny, heart-warming tale inspired by the true story of Tony Brigg’s 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.
