In 1966, on the evening of the last ever Tivoli performance in Sydney, veteran variety star Evie May (Amanda Harrison) recalls the events that lead her from obscurity in regional Western Australia to the bright lights of the Australian variety circuit and the many sacrifices she made to get there.

Forced to run away from home at an early age, Evie spent her whole life trying to escape the pain of her past. As the final curtain comes down on the Tivoli and everything that has come to define her, Evie struggles to find her place in a world that no longer values the very thing she has spent her life pursuing.

EVIE MAY offers a compelling take on memory, motherhood, and the fascinating characters populating Australia’s rich theatrical history.

It is so important to recognise and celebrate our rich theatre history and at the workshop  presentation of Evie May A Tivoli Story I was very excited to discover two young writers who were fulfilling that necessity with enthusiastic  dedication. – Nancye Hayes AM
