The Umbrella Foundation - Driftwood

Wed, 31st May to Sun, 4th June

in 3 days. Tickets $39 to $69
Presented by The Umbrella Foundation
An epic story of love, courage, survival... and foldable umbrellas.

Based on the original memoir by Eva de Jong-Duldig and stage play by award-winning playwright Jane Bodie. Acclaimed Director Gary Abrahams brings a stellar cast to the stage. This epic story features original music, lyrics and arrangements by Anthony Barnhill with additional lyrics by Tania de Jong AM and Jane Bodie.

Driftwood The Musical tells the inspirational story of the renowned Austrian/Australian sculptor Karl Duldig and his artist/inventor wife, Slawa Horowitz-Duldig.
We follow their lives in pre-war Vienna, Slawa's ingenious invention of the foldable umbrella, and an incredible chain of events: miraculously escaping the Holocaust and rebuilding their careers as artists in Melbourne. A magical story of art and creativity, survival and perseverance, family, freedom and love.
