Sydney Theatre Company has revealed the return of Suzie Miller’s highly acclaimed production “RBG: Of Many, One,” in 2024, starring the talented Heather Mitchell. This production will embark on an extensive tour across Australia, encompassing performances in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, and Canberra.

Having captivated audiences and garnered standing ovations during its initial 8-week run in 2022, Heather Mitchell will once again bring the remarkable life of Ruth Bader Ginsburg to life on the theatrical stage.

Produced as an intimate one-woman show, this play is the creation of Suzie Miller, a former Australian lawyer turned Olivier Award-winning playwright. Priscilla Jackman, known for her directorial work on productions like “White Pearl” and “Still Point Turning,” directs the production. 

The narrative chronicles the incredible accomplishments spanning RBG’s life from the age of 13 until she turned 87, tracing her journey from a teenager in New York to her groundbreaking nomination to the Supreme Court. The play also delves into her unwavering advocacy for reproductive rights and her roles alongside Presidents Clinton, Obama, and Trump. Beyond the public persona, the show aims to illuminate the woman behind the iconic figure.

“RBG: Of Many, One” is scheduled to premiere at the Drama Theatre in the Sydney Opera House in February 2024. The production will also be shown at the Canberra Theatre Centre in April, followed by performances at the Arts Centre Melbourne and Brisbane’s QPAC in May. The tour will culminate with a final return to Sydney, at Riverside Theatres in Parramatta.

Tickets for Melbourne and Brisbane are on sale 9am, Thursday 31 August. Sydney and Canberra tickets will be released at a later date, check venue websites for updates.
