The Sapphires is one of the 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 and bring this story directly to local stages. Four young Aboriginal country music singers in regional Australia suddenly get the chance to change their tune and their lives.

The Sapphires is a funny, heart-warming tale inspired by the true story of Tony Briggs’ mother – the incredible journey of four Yorta Yorta Women, who sing classic soul hits against the backdrop of massive social upheaval.

“A gem of a play. Briggs mixes fact and fiction to lay bare and flesh out his celebratory tale which, though political in patches, is focused on the personal. The Sapphires is heartfelt and joyous. Superb.” Bryce Hallett, Sydney Morning Herald

Written and Directed by Tony Briggs
