The Matilda Women

Re-printed to celebrate the 21st anniversary of the first performance, The Matilda Women is a joyous theatre event which celebrates the lives of nine extraordinary women from Queensland’s past. Fast-moving imaginative theatre where in a moment a rope from a washing line can represent a ship; a step ladder becomes a magistrate’s seat or a rocky hill; and a bed sheet, a baby. The Matilda Women celebrates the strengths and achievements of women past and gives inspiration and confidence to women of the future.
