“Sunshine Super Girl explores connection to country and community, while taking an unflinching look at poverty, adversity and racism in Australia. The story is told with plenty of heart, humour, charm and skill.” – Bryan Andy in Witness.
Sydney Festival is returning 6 – 26 January 2021 with an all Australian line up and we here at Performing Lines are thrilled to be presenting three shows, Andrea James’ Sunshine Super Girl, Nathan Maynard and Jamie McCaskill’s Hide the Dog, and Paul Mac and Lachlan Philpott’s The Rise and Fall of Saint George. It is a privilege to be part of a program that so strongly features artists from our vibrant independent sector.
Sunshine Super Girl* has recently completed its world premiere at Griffith Regional Theatre as part of the Yarruwala Wiradjuri Cultural Festival. This watershed work celebrates the life and achievements of Australian sporting legend Evonne Goolagong Cawley. Written and directed by Yorta Yorta / Gunaikurnai theatre maker Andrea James, Sunshine Super Girl features an extraordinary First Nations cast lead by the exceptional Katie Beckett as Evonne. The show garnered resoundingly positive feedback from reviewers and audiences.
