Mrs Prime Minister
‘Mrs Prime Minister’ is an evening of songs and stories about seven women:
Tamie Fraser, Bettina Gorton, Hazel Hawke, Zara Holt, Annita Keating, Sonia McMahon and Margaret Whitlam, wives of the Prime Minister and residents of The Lodge, Canberra 1966-96.
Iconic Melbourne singing actors Sally Bourne, Jane Clifton and Chelsea Plumley, accompanied by the Adelaide Avenue Trio featuring Ana Mitsikas, perform jazz inflected songs by John Thorn (Spontaneous Broadway) and Terence O’Connell (Minefields And Miniskirts: Australian Women And The Vietnam War).
This intimate show looks at the private lives behind the public images: scandals, triumphs, challenges, defeats, heartbreak. Songs include ‘On Cheviot Beach’ (Zara), ‘It Wasn’t Meant To Be Easy’ (Tamie), ‘My Other World’ (Margaret) ‘Mozart & I’ (Hazel) and of course Sonia’s ‘A White Dress In The White House’.
