Critical Stages

Igniting memories of a story that millions of Australians can relate to, Michaela Burger pays tribute to her Greek migrant family and hard-working, fun and loving father Luke who defied all odds.

From early morning deliveries for the family bakery at age seven, down opal mines in Coober Pedy at age sixteen and opening a chain of discount supermarkets in Adelaide, Luke’s road was not one for the faint-hearted.

Premiering to a sell-out Adelaide Cabaret Festival season, nominated for a Helpmann Academy Award and winner of the inaugural Frank Ford Award at the 2019 Adelaide Fringe, this critically-acclaimed work conveys an incredible true story through original music written and performed by Burger alongside a local Wyndham community choir.

“Burger’s emotionally powered narrative of her family’s history was one the most passionate and heartfelt I’ve seen in any cabaret show.” – Arts Review

★★★★★ “Burger is extraordinary. A singer who can act and an actor who can elevate an audience out of itself into the middle of the story she is conveying” – Glam Adelaide
