    The Lighthouse Girl Saga


    Written by Jenny Davis and Hellie Turner. Directed by Stuart Halusz.
    Featuring Sienna Cate, Isaac Diamond and Nick Maclaine.
    Based on the novels by award-winning author Dianne Wolfer

    The Lighthouse Girl Saga is a sweeping story of ordinary people living in extraordinary times: a tale of courage, resilience, hope and love. A bold adaptation by two of WA’s leading and award-winning playwrights, Jenny Davis OAM and Hellie Turner, this epic production blends four award-winning novels by West Australian writer, Dianne Wolfer: Lighthouse Girl, Light Horse Boy, In the Lamplight and The Last Light Horse into the most compelling theatrical event of our times.

    Be transported with the First AIF convoy from the beacon of the lighthouse at Breaksea Island, to the hell of Gallipoli, the mud in the trenches at the Western Front, a nurse’s compassion in rural England and peaceful horizons in country Victoria. Journey with Fay, Charlie, Jim, Rose and Sandy, the only warhorse to return to Australia of the 136,000 sent to war, across seas and through the mire of war as their intersecting stories culminate in the forging of the ANZAC spirit and a love that conquers all.

  • 2-5 May - Luna Leederville
  • 6-14 July - Como Theatre




  • A.B. Facey’s A Fortunate Life


    Adapted for the stage by Jenny Davis & Stuart Halusz. Directed by Stuart Halusz.
    Featuring Benj D'Addario, Rebecca Davis and Michael Abercromby.

    A Fortunate Life embraces themes that are intrinsic to our history and culture as modern Australians - resilience, fortitude, hope and integrity, bringing the beloved bushland to the big screen and placing humanity centre stage.

    This striking collaboration between artists of stage and screen honours the trials and triumphs of extraordinary everyman AB Facey, whose award-winning Australian classic autobiography, A Fortunate Life, has been adapted for an immersive live theatre performance with a cinema setting.

    As A.B. Facey’s extraordinary story unfolds, audiovisual projections and live actors evoke distinct natural environments, definitive historic events, and the daily grind of farmers, settlers and city dwellers throughout 20th Century Western Australia.

    Tickets are now on sale - choose from the following venues and click the links for more information:
  • 10-12 May - Luna Leederville
  • 27 Sept -6 Oct - Como Theatre

    A compelling true story of the celebration of women’s strength, love and hope in the face of adversity 21 Hearts relays the resilient Aussie humour displayed by the women in the camp and provides a respectful and authentic voice to those who were silenced, remembering them for who they were and not just for what happened to them.
