UNCOVERING MAY GIBBS by Jenny Davis tours to Harvey
On Saturday, 17 November, our play about May Gibbs will play at the Recreational and Cultural Centre at Harvey, the town where May spent some of her early childhood years before the family settled in South Perth. Growing up in Western Australia, May was inspired by the local flora and fauna to create her gumnut babies.
The play also features Ethel Turner of Seven Little Australians fame, and Mary Grant Bruce, who wrote the Billabong series. These contemporary writers were the first to write stories for and about Australian children and the Australian bush.
Starring Rebecca Davis, Clare Moore, Michelle Fornasier, Craig Skelton, Saskia Halusz and Bernie Davis
