The Hatpin is a gripping story inspired by a true Australian event, performed in Brisbane’s most unique performance space, the historic Spring Hill Reservoir.
This intimate performance (only 100 seats per show) tells the tale of single mother, Amber Murray, who in 1892, advertised her baby in a newspaper trading column with the hope of saving his life.
What ensued was one of the most captivating, moving and exciting criminal trials in Australian history.
Presented by Oz Theatricals, this powerful piece of musical theatre features an eleven piece chamber orchestra and some of Brisbane’s best theatrical talents.
Need to know - Entry is via a steep metal staircase (high heels not recommended!) and there is no wheelchair access. On street parking is available nearby.
