By Suzie Miller
Directed by Priscilla Jackman

“One of the all-time great performances” – The Sydney Morning Herald

After a wildly popular, sold-out premiere season in 2022, the Sydney Theatre Company smash-hit production arrives in Canberra with the brilliant Heather Mitchell reviving her award-winning “virtuosic performance” (The Conversation) of the woman who changed the face of the American legal system: the indomitable Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

The second woman to be appointed to the US Supreme Court, Ruth Bader Ginsburg was both a trailblazer in the American judiciary and a fierce advocate for gender equality and reproductive rights. Now, her life is brought to the stage by the extraordinary pen of Olivier Award-winning Australian playwright Suzie Miller (Prima Facie), in a story that chronicles Ginsburg’s wins and dissents, traces her steps forward and the steps back, and brings you right into the room with Ruth at the most pivotal moments of her life.

Director Priscilla Jackman reunites with Mitchell to reconjure RBG in this once-in-a-generation theatrical event that is “magnificent from start to finish” (Limelight).
