Geraldine Turner is one of Australia’s most renowned stars of the stage, but growing up in Brisbane in the 1950s and 1960s in a dysfunctional family fraught with alcohol abuse, violence and mental health issues, Geraldine could hardly have imagined the places her talent would take her and the esteem in which she would one day be held.

If you are a fan of Australian theatre then Turner’s memoir is an absolute must-read. Packed to the gills with anecdote after anecdote from an incredible life and career.

Turner shares poignant stories of her relationship with her parents and siblings and the many years of commitment required to make it to the top.

Geraldine Turner’s career has seen her star in acclaimed Australian productions of great musicals including Chicago and Anything Goes and Stephen Sondheim works including Sweeney Todd, Company and Into the Woods.

Join us for a disarmingly honest Writers+Ideas with Turner in conversation with Paul Dellit, as they discuss the highs and disappointments of a life in show business.
