      EVENT DETAILS
      The Sapphires

      The Sapphires is a heart-warming tale inspired by the true story of Tony Briggs’ mother. Set in 1968 during landmark changes to Aboriginal rights, it tells the story of a singing group of four young Yorta Yorta women, discovered by a talent scout at St Kilda’s Tiki Club.


      He convinces them to tour Vietnam to sing classic soul songs for the troops and it becomes a life-altering trip to the depths of war and back again. Whilst The Sapphires explores issues such as race, prejudice and pleas for acceptance, it is an energetic and engaging play that affirms life and the realisation of dreams.


      Featuring a talented young ensemble of first nation performers in all the Indigenous Australian roles as well as multicultural performers, Tony Briggs will direct his play for the first time and head a highly credentialed Indigenous Australian directing and design team.
