Driftwood the Musical
Glen Street Theatre May 24 – 28
Driftwood The Musical is based on the epic memoir “Driftwood – Escape and Survival through Art”, by Eva de Jong-Duldig. This memoir is an account of Eva’s parents’ escape from Austria after the Anschluss of 1938, and their journey to Melbourne where they eventually settled. Eva’s mother Slawa, was a painter and designer, and among her inventions was the foldable umbrella. Her father Karl Duldig was an acclaimed sculptor, and the redemptive power of art plays a pivotal role in this story.
Driftwood the Musical comes direct to Sydney after receiving rave reviews in Melbourne along with a 2022 Green Room Award nomination.
It will play at Glen Street Theatre, Belrose from 24 to 28 May. It then transfers to Riverside Theatres, Parramatta from 31 May to 4 June and onto Eternity Playhouse, Darlinghurst from 7 to 18 June.
