World Premiere Exclusive to Griffith
A young girl hits a ball against the tin wall with a frying pan. This is where it all began for Evonne Goolagong, the Wiradjuri girl who conquered the world.
Griffith Regional Theatre and Performing Lines present the World Premiere of Sunshine Super Girl – the Evonne Goolagong Story – written and directed by Yorta Yorta/Gunnakurnai playwright Andrea James - a brand new theatre work celebrating the life and achievements of Australia’s best loved sporting legend.
A proud Wiradjuri woman, Evonne was born in Griffith and they are thrilled to launch her moving and often funny story here - where it all began. The quintessentially Australian story of a girl from the bush who dared to dream, and overcame incredible odds to become World Number One!
