The Sapphires is one of Australia’s best-loved stories. Winning multiple awards as a play, film and soundtrack album there was one challenge left and that was to undertake a national tour of Australia. Bringing the raw energy, fun and emotion of this story directly to stages like the Shoalhaven Entertainment Centre and across the nation. Writer Tony Briggs will direct his work in a version he promises will be the most intimate telling of "The Sapphires" story yet. Four young Aboriginal women, who like singing country music, suddenly get the chance to change their tune and their lives. Wearing uniforms of sequins, armed only with microphones they find themselves trying to spread joy in the hell that is the Vietnam War.
