Your Guide To What's On – Things To Do In Sydney, Australia

Her Brilliant Career

Her Brilliant Career looks through the prism of Miles Franklin’s explosive relationship with her mother, as the play brings to life Miles’ stellar rise

to fame as a young girl and why she was never able to repeat that success. We see her refusal to commit to marriage; her years in Chicago working alongside the Suffra- gettes, and why she had to stay away from Australia for close to 30 years yet remained a trenchant nationalist who joined a nationalist/pro-fascist group on her return. Haunted by poverty and failure, she established the Miles Franklin Award, which re- mains Australia’s highest literary prize.
