About the Show

Written by Indigenous Australian playwright Tony Briggs, who is the son of one of the real-life Sapphires, The Sapphires is a musical comedy that follows the true heat-warming story of four young Aboriginal Yorta Yorta women in 1960s Australia who travel to Vietnam to sing to the troops.  

Wearing sequins and armed only with microphones they find themselves trying to spread joy in the hell that is the Vietnam War.

The Sapphires is an energetic, fun and engaging play that affirms life and the realisation of dreams.

“Go see this for the magnificent music, fascinating story, and to support a group of brilliant First Nations talent.” (Stage Whispers)

“Sheer enjoyment. The Sapphires is a fun show with loads of appeal.” (The Age)

Written & Directed by Tony Briggs
