ABOUT THE SHOW

Join Walkley Award-winning journalist, Hedley Thomas, as he brings live to the stage a forensic behind-the-scenes account of the cold case that gripped the nation. From the mysterious disappearance of suburban Mum Lynette Simms from Sydney’s idyllic northern beaches in 1982, to the podcast that re-opened the case, and finally to the courtroom drama that saw justice delivered 40 years later.

The Teacher’s Pet podcast, released in 2018, was a worldwide smash hit with over 50 million downloads reaching #1 in the podcast charts in Australia the UK and Canada. Celebrating the release of his definitive book, The Teacher’s Pet, Headley will be joined onstage by award winning author and journalist Matthew Condon.
