About My Brilliant Career

Sybylla Melvyn has grown up beyond the black stump, but she is determined to get away and make her own spectacular mark on the world. But if that’s to happen, she must first surmount collapsing family fortunes, a world hardwired against headstrong women, and the insistent nagging of love.

One of our great tales of emancipation and identity, fashioned in a new adaptation by rising Australian playwright Kendall Feaver, with the irrepressible Nikki Shiels as Sybylla.

Dark, funny, and roughly a century ahead of her time, Sybylla’s voice is one that demands to be heard – a guttural cry of rage against the inequities set at birth. – Kendall Feaver

Written by Miles Franklin

Adapted by Kendall Feaver

Directed by Kate Champion

Supported by the Chair’s Circle
