THE SAPPHIRES

BY TONY BRIGGS

BLACK SWAN STATE THEATRE COMPANY AND COMPANY B BELVOIR

Meet the McCrae sisters, four gorgeous Motown-crazy singers from country New South Wales. When a talent scout discovers their Supremes cover band in St Kilda's Tiki Club, dreams of fame, fortune and glamorous international careers seem close at hand. Instead, these Koori divas find themselves in the war zone of Vietnam, entertaining the troops.

Based on his mother and aunts' true showbiz story, Tony Briggs has created a story of family, love, war and the hottest soul music in the jungle. Directed by Wesley Enoch and featuring a stellar cast including Christine Anu, Casey Donovan and Kylie Farmer, this all new co-production sees our four leading ladies raise the Playhouse roof with such seminal hits as ‘Stop in the Name of Love', 'Chain of Fools', ‘Sex Machine', ‘Knock on Wood' and ‘Respect'.

DIRECTOR Wesley Enoch
CAST INCLUDES Aljin Abella, Christine Anu, Jimi Bani, Casey Donovan, Kylie Farmer, Kenneth Ransom and Oliver Wenn
