Things are opening up a bit in New South Wales again, but Covid is still very much with us. How have you been going during this time?
I…have absolutely loved lockdown. In this line of work, you find yourself jumping from one job to another with little to no rest, and being a single mum, that can get extra tiring! So I have loved having time to slow down, show myself self–love and care, and really connect with my son. Except when I had to teach him maths…that is stressful, I just don’t know why he couldn’t bloody get it! But besides that, loved it.
So someone asks you “what’s this Sunshine Super Girl show?”…what do you say?
It is a play about the wonderfully, super talented Evonne Goolagong. It’s a heart-warming and spirited work.
It celebrates the legacy of who she is and the mark she made on the world, and the pride she brought to us as blackfellas, and the pride she brought all Australians.
