Belvoir St Theatre's final show for 2020 is My Brilliant Career. Based on the 1901 novel of the same name written by Miles Franklin. It will be staged from 5 December to 31 January 2021.
It takes us into the world of fiery misfit Sybylla Melvyn, as she wrestles against the restricted life on offer for a young woman in rural Australia a hundred years ago.
Sybylla, a wannabe-writer, is from a drought-stricken farm and hopes to become a writer. But when a local aristocratic farmer proposes, she has to choose between a conventional marriage and trying to achieve a 'brilliant career'.
