Following a triumphant return season at the Sydney Opera House, Blonde Poison will premier in Melbourne for a strictly limited season.
This remarkable one woman play about beauty, treachery and the high price of survival stars 2015 Sydney Theatre Awards Best Actress nominee, Belinda Giblin.
The Story: Based on a true story, Stella Goldschlag (Giblin) was living illegally in war torn Berlin when she was betrayed and tortured. When offered the chance of saving herself and her parents from the death camps, she agreed to be a catcher for the Gestapo who named her ‘Blonde Poison’. Credited’ with finding and capturing 3000 Jews, she continued working for the Gestapo even after her parents had been sent to their death.The vast dimensions of Stella’s character range from tortured victim to cruel killer, from loving daughter and mother to betrayer of friends, from gentle lover to depraved promiscuity. What would you do to survive? Directed by Jennifer Hagan and critically acclaimed as a “90-minute tour de force.”
“Giblin is absolutely sensational...This show shouldn’t be missed and Giblin’s Best Actress nomination was certainly well deserved.” Theatre Now by Alana Kaye
Our media crew / Bryanna Reynolds will be covering the opening night for media of this sensational production on June 2.
