Before Ash Barty lifted the trophy at Wimbledon, there was Evonne Goolagong.

A young girl hits a ball against the tin wall of her family’s home. This is where it all began for Evonne. Hers is a quintessentially Blak Australian story about a girl from the bush who dared to dream. With the support of an outback farming town, Evonne rose to become the number one tennis player in the world and a household name by the age of 19.

Evonne Goolagong’s heart-warming story is a celebration of spirit and passion over adversity, and a tribute to a woman whose sporting prowess continues to inspire a nation, giving hope to thousands of young girls across the country.

This landmark new Australian work is written and directed by Yorta Yorta / Gunaikurnai theatremaker Andrea James (Yanagai! Yanagai!). With its distinctively Australian sensibility and humour, Sunshine Super Girl asks us to consider our nation’s future and the part we can play for the next ‘Goolagong’ waiting in the wings.
