20 Jul, 2014 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$25 - $30

Poster for The Hatpin  final version2The Hatpin is a musical theatre production inspired by the true story of Amber Murray who in 1892 gave up her son to the Makin family in Sydney, Australia.

Amber advertised her baby in a newspaper trading column in the hope of saving his life. Baby farmers take the child in return for regular support payments but actually murder the child. Eventually, the evil couple are arrested and tried for the murder of several infants, leading to one of the most moving criminal trials in Australian history.

Using the moral support she gains from her friendship with the free spirited Harriet Piper, Amber fights the injustices of circumstance and tragedy to find hope and strength.

Directed by Graeme Johnson

Musical Direction by Paul Lawrence Olsen
