RBG: Of Many, One

3 - 6 Apr

“Magnificent from start to finish” - Limelight

By Suzie Miller
Directed by Priscilla Jackman

After a smash-hit premiere season in 2022, the luminous Heather Mitchell reprises her “virtuosic” (The Conversation) performance as Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the hotly anticipated national tour of RBG: Of Many, One. Now Wollongong can experience an intimate, behind-the-curtain audience with the woman who changed the face of the American legal system.

The second woman to be appointed to the US Supreme Court, Ruth Bader Ginsburg was both a trailblazer in the American judiciary, and a fierce advocate for gender equality and reproductive rights. RBG: Of Many, One chronicles her wins and dissents; the steps forward, the steps back. It reveals a woman of intellect, courage, determination and feeling; the personal behind the political.

On the heels of Prima Facie which took London’s West End by storm, Olivier Award-winning Australian playwright Suzie Miller continues her interrogation of complex human stories, with this vibrant portrait of one of the most iconic women of our time.
