Melbourne Writers’ Theatre – Jennie

by | Jul 9, 2024

Rebel. Radical. Revolutionary. 

Driven by her desire for a fairer society, and passionate about improving conditions for women and children, Jennie Baines arrived in Port Melbourne in 1926 and made her mark in no uncertain terms! She also left behind a powerful legacy.

Marli van der Bijl (Hamlet, Les Miserables, Hairspray) brings Jennie Baines to life in Jennie!

This entertaining new play invites you into the world of this remarkable suffragette, immersing you in the sights, sounds and streets of the working-class neighborhood she fought to protect – and the children she vowed she would save.

Proudly presented by Melbourne Writers’ Theatre.
