Monkey Baa Theatre’s ‘Hitler’s Daughter’ by Jackie French – Huge Success!!!!
‘What a wonderful show. It’s the best Monkey Baa production I’ve seen yet – gripping, funny and moving and the young performers were outstanding’  from Mark Macleod author and publisher.
 
I sat between Jackie French and Morris Gleitzman – we’re the three patrons of Monkey Baa Theatre for Young People – see ‘Hitler’s Daughter’ opening at the Seymour Theatre Sydney.
 
Jackie and I squeezed hands as this moving, powerful, emotional performance. The story is inspired by many stories of the Holocaust.  It challenges young people and old to question not only Hitler who lead Germany and Europe into insanity, but what is still happening today. 
 
 
The actors were brilliant – Michael Gupta who played the teenager Mark who was on this great quest for meaning
 
Robert Jago was a myriad of characters -he has such a natural comic talent. Such a great balance to the seriousness of the play.
 
Melle Stewart waqs a moving Anna and amazingly transfored into Fraulein gelber.
 
Kate Worsley was a shere delight.
 
GO, GO, GO – I promise you’ll come away with so much.
 
PS The fantastic sound and music designer Jeremy Silver did I AM JACK – he was just as amazing in Hitler’s Daughter.
 
They have been invited to take ‘Hitler’s Daughter’ to the USA and have opend their ANGEL WITH WINGS APPEAL – please support it because Australian theatre, Hitler’s Daughter and this production needs to go beyond Australian shores.

Will we let it continue – Rwanda, Bosnia, the Kurds, the Ba’hais, Camodia?
 
The experience is funny, sad, joyous, confronting – truly great theatre. Huge applause to the director Sandra Edridge who is also one of the Directors of Monkey Baa Theatre. I am still thinking about ‘Hitler’s Daughter.’
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 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.
