Presented by Sydney Theatre Company
Performed entirely by the incomparable Heather Mitchell, this is an intimate theatrical portrait of one woman who changed history.
This is an intimate, behind-the-curtain audience with one woman who changed the face of the American legal system and history, all performed by one actor: the incomparable Heather Mitchell.
Spanning her life from teenage years to her death in 2020, RBG: Of Many, One brings Ruth Bader Ginsburg's fascinating life vividly to the stage. The second woman to be appointed to the US Supreme Court, Ruth Bader Ginsburg was both a trailblazer in the American legislature and a fierce advocate for gender equality and reproductive rights. RBG: Of Many, One chronicles her wins and dissents; the steps forward, the steps back. It reveals a woman of intellect, courage, determination and feeling; the personal behind the political.
On the heels of the runaway success of Prima Facie on the West End, award-winning Australian playwright and lawyer, Suzie Miller, has crafted another interrogation of complex human stories and injustice. This time, with a vibrant theatrical portrait of one of the most iconic women of our time.
Mitchell (Playing Beatie Bow, The Harp in the South: Part One and Part Two) reunites with director Priscilla Jackman with whom she pioneered another historic biographical play, Still Point Turning: The Catherine McGregor Story. Together with Miller, they will bring us into the room with Ruth at key moments of her life, celebrating the legacy and the tenacity of this incredible woman.
