The Playhouse is transformed into a tennis court as we follow the heart-warming story of Wiradjuri Australian tennis legend Evonne Goolagong.

A young girl hits a ball against the tin wall of her family’s home. This is where it all began for Evonne Goolagong. Hers is a quintessentially Blak Australian story about a girl from the bush who dared to dream, and with the support of an outback farming town, rose to become a tennis world number one and a household name by the age of 19.

Evonne Goolagong’s heart-warming story is a celebration of spirit and passion over adversity. It’s a tribute to a woman whose sporting prowess continues to inspire a nation, giving hope to thousands of young girls across the country. With its distinctively Australian sensibility and humour, Sunshine Super Girl asks us to consider our nation’s future and the part we can play for the next ‘Goolagong’ waiting in the wings.

Written and directed by Yorta Yorta/Gunaikurnai theatremaker Andrea James Sunshine Super Girl explores connection to country, adversity and racism in Australia with heart and humour.
