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'.

Starring Blazey Best, Jason Chong, Tom Conroy, Emma Harvie, Tracy Mann, Nikki Shiels and Guy Simon.

My Brilliant Career also saw a film adaptation in 1979. Directed by Gillian Armstrong starring Judy Davis, Sam Neill and Wendy Hughes.

For those returning to the theatre, a range of stringent new health and safety measures will be implemented to keep the audience, artists and staff safe.

Visit Belvoir St Theatre for the theatre adaptation of My Brilliant Career from 5 December until 31 January 2021.
