About Driftwood the Musical at Riverside Theatres

Umbrella Foundation is delighted to present Driftwood – The Musical. This epic story has been adapted for the stage by award-winning playwright Jane Bodie, based on the original memoir by Eva de Jong-Duldig. It features original music and arrangements by Anthony Barnhill with lyrics by Tania de Jong AM, Jane Bodie and Anthony Barnhill. Acclaimed Director Gary Abrahams brings a stellar cast to the stage.

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.
