Monkey Baa Theatre, Siren Theatre, Margaret Wild & the FOX – brilliant theatre

I was breathless as I sat in Studio 2 of the Seymour Centre. Margaret Wild sat next to me as her deeply emotional picture book Fox illustrated by Ron Brooks, emerged onto the stage.

The operatic feel, the friendship of DOG and Magpie as they found love and care despite or because of Magpie’s broken wing and Dog’s one eye and the danger of FOX.  

Love & Friendship

Music, dance, characterisation, the great themes of life capture you in a performance that unlocks us all.


It’s coming in APRIL 2010 – see it, to enrich your lives.

Margaret Wild author & DOG from FOXEva di Cesare one of the creative directors of Monkey Baa & Anastasia who LOVED the production of FOX

MONEY BAA THEATRE FOR YOUNG PEOPLE & SIREN THEATRE are breaking new ground in this powerful adaptation of one of the world’s important picture books.


Jackie French, Morris Gleitzman and I are the patrons of MONKEY BAA THEATRE for Young People.

I'm a writer committed to kids in particular. Adults are good too. Want to bring hope through story to my readers. Awarded an Order of Australia, Lady Cutler Award and a Lifetime International Award for Literacy for my body of work, spreading literacy is really important. I'm head of SCBWI Australia East & New Zealand, patron of Monkey Baa Theatre, Ambassador for the Premier's Reading Challenge, Writer Ambassador for Room to Read ... among other roles. I also love heritage and adapting to enhance the lives of people today, which is why I restored The Hughenden Hotel 1870s and The Residences Centennial Park - the only homes in the parklands which are open now for accommodation, events and lots of nature.
