Description

Relive the vibrant stories of nine extraordinary women from Australia’s past- Gladys Moncrieff, Australia’s ‘Queen of Song’; Lillian Cooper, Queensland’s first female doctor; Emma Miller, ‘Mother of the Labor Party’, and many more equally important women of the past who inspired the women of the future.

The doctor and her bicycle, the shy painter, the naturalist who knows no English, the kitchen maid who reads Shakespeare, the trade unionist, the performer, the ill-fated teacher and the luckless farmer’s wife accused of murder, The Matilda Women is fastpaced imaginative theatre that celebrates the strengths and achievements of Australian women.
