Hatpin, The Drama; Fringe Australasian View Details Compare
Short
Synopsis

THE HATPIN is inspired by the true story of Amber Murray who in 1892 gave up her son to the Makin family in Sydney, Australia.

THE HATPIN tells story of a single mother, Amber Murray, who advertised her baby in a newspaper trading column in the hope of saving his life...and ended up embroiled in one of the most captivating, moving and exciting criminal trials in Australian history. Using the moral support she gains from her friendship with the free spirited Harriet Piper, Amber fights the injustices of circumstance and tragedy to find hope and strength.

A moving and hopeful story about friendship and courage. Dealing with motherhood, poverty and the resilience of women thriving under extraordinary pressures, this show looks at the public’s judgment of private choice, the power of self-liberty and the notion of “care”.

This case of Amber Murray vs. The Makins was influential in bringing about awareness in society of the need for welfare for single-mothers and the demand for a review of the Australian Child Protection Act.

Short
Synopsis

HOMEMADE FUSION, a series of musical snapshots from the imaginations of Kooman and Dimond. Each snapshot attempts to make sense of an increasingly senseless world by examining the paradox of modern times. At once dangerously cynical and desperately romantic, it is a tale of love, loss, and candy bars.

Made up of clever solos and duets, each tells a strong story, whether it be a poignant ballad or a risqué comic number. Songs deal with being true to oneself, chocoholics, misinterpreting signals and how Lucy’s laugh can drive you insane.
