Lysa & The Freeborn Dames

by Claire Christian presented by Jopuka Productions in partnership with Red Tree Theatre

Lysa King is nineteen and angry. After spending a year away from her small town, experiencing a powerful uprising of her own political voice, and the protests of women all over the world, Lysa has returned to discover that revolution seems to be happening everywhere but home.

Her arrival coincides with the biggest weekend on the annual calendar, the War Weekender, a weekend-long celebration of the town’s most prized citizens, the local footy team. Unable to stay silent, Lysa decides it’s time to ensure that her voice is heard, and armed with a flag, a manifesto, and the key to the footy club’s change rooms she plans to bring revolution about by any means necessary.

Inspired by Aristophanes’ Lysistrata, Christian lands us in the present with this hilarious, messy, and glitter-filled response to the power of women globally.

For ages 12+

Production contains some adult themes and coarse language.

How did Red Tree Theatre get its name?

The Foundation was inspired by The Red Tree (2001), a picture book written and illustrated by Shaun Tan. Richly illustrated, it presents a fragmented journey through a dark world, with images inspired by the experience of depression. The main character is a lonely red-headed girl. A red leaf from a red tree follows the girl through her day, stating how she feels and depicting her worries. Almost unnoticed in each picture is a small red leaf, symbolising hope. At the end, the little girl stands smiling at a beautiful red-leafed tree growing in her bedroom. See The Red Tree.

Elderslee Foundation recognises the connection between participation in cultural activity and the arts and well-being. We believe that by calling our major performance space Red Tree Theatre, we are taking our place in the creative community of the Central Coast, encouraging social connection and community cohesion, and making a positive contribution to the health and well-being of the community.

The Foundation commissioned Grant Maloney, a local artist to give expression to our Red Tree Theatre, and it is his evocative and dramatic painting in the foyer of our Centre that patrons see upon entering this space. This beautiful artwork reminds us of our shared humanity and the powerful connection between the arts, hopefulness and well-being.
