Event description

The Enigma of Miles Franklin

by Alice Spigelman

Director Moira Blumenthal Dramaturg Timothy Daly

Miles Franklin returns to Sydney in 1932 after years living in Chicago and London. She is still trying to get her books published, with little success. Frustrated by living with her elderly mother, the lack of money and feelings of failure, she struggles to reignite her fame as a twenty-year old when she wrote My Brilliant Career that captured the nation’s imagination.

Hope glimmers when she meets the mercurial publisher Inky Stephensen. They become friends who share a great love of their land. She joins Inky’s Yabber club of writers and ‘progressive thinkers’ passionate for Australians to create their own culture and break with Britain. As war gathers in Europe, the group segues into the fascist-leaning Australia First that looks to Hitler’s Germany as a model for strong leadership.
