With Fire in her Heart: the Edith Cowan Story

With Fire in her Heart: The Edith Cowan Story will be staged at the 2021 Perth Fringe Festival. The play celebrates the remarkable life of Edith Cowan, the first woman elected to the Australian parliament. 2021 marks the centennial of Edith’s achievements in Australian politics and this wonderful play brings to life her remarkable story. From her early life growing up near Geraldton, dealing with death and loss to a trail-blazing career as a social reformer, Edith worked tirelessly for the rights and welfare of woman and children. Director Gabrielle Metcalf, Writer Trevor Todd (PCWC 2013 Writer-in-Residence) and Designer Tyler Hill work with a team of dynamic and diverse artists to realise this beautiful and uniquely Western Australian story.
