Maleny Arts Council is proud to present the Award winning drama Motherland in the Community Centre on Wednesday 4th May at 7.00pm, direct from the Queensland Theatre Company Season.
Motherland is passionate, gripping, contemporary theatre, weaving multiple stories of home, belonging, love and loss that span decades, continents and revolutions. Based on true stories, this powerful and intimate drama intertwines the sweeping stories of three very different women from different times, united in the heartache of exile from their homelands. Nelle Tritton was born and raised in Brisbane but was obsessed with all things Russian. She moved to Europe where she met, worked for and then married the exiled Russian Prime Minister, Alexander Kerensky.
Nina Berberova was a Russian writer exiled from her homeland and living in Europe at the time of WWII. She was also a woman who described herself as having two sexes: walking the streets of Paris at night, dressed as a man.
Alyona was a Russian historian and museum curator who met an Australian businessman while she was preparing an exhibition on Nina’s life. She was a single mother, lured to Australia with the promise of endless Pizza Huts and sunshine, only to discover that the Fitzgerald Inquiry was in full force in Queensland and her husband’s business was bankrupt.
