Stella - The Miles Franklin Story

DOORS 1PM // KITCHEN OPEN // SHOW STARTS 2PM

STELLA: The Miles Franklin Story – feat. Monique diMattina, Alma Zygier & Fem Belling

Songs, skits and gossip from a musical in development. 

Acclaimed Australian composer/lyricist Monique diMattina presents a concert work-in-progress version of her newest project – STELLA: The Miles Franklin Story.

Sharing songs, stories, gossip and skits from this musical in development, Monique and her all-star chamber orchestra tell the extraordinary life story of Australian author Stella Miles Franklin.

Starring ALMA ZYGIER and FEM BELLING and featuring

 Xani Kolac, Esther Henderson, Kalina Krusteva, Monique diMattina, Cat Canteri and Sam Lemann.

Although the Miles Franklin Award is Australia’s most prestigious literary prize, most Australians are unaware that Miles was a woman, let alone the details of her extraordinary life.  

Weaving together songs, gossip and Stella Miles Franklin’s own words, the show brings audiences on an epic journey from Franklin’s Snowy Mountains childhood to fame as the young author of My Brilliant Career, years battling for women’s suffrage and labour rights in the USA and UK, WWI field work, creative struggles and legacy as a trailblazing champion of Australian art, conservation and culture.

STELLA: The Miles Franklin Story will make you laugh, cry and love what Stella called ““our unique, inebriating, laughing, haunting, wistful, brooding, ancient, ageless, siren land”
