After a smash-hit premiere season in 2022, Merrigong Theatre Company is thrilled to bring Suzie Miller’s 'RBG: Of Many, One' to the Illawarra Performing Arts Centre from the 3 to 6 April.

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. RBG: Of Many, One chronicles her wins and dissents; the steps forward, the steps back. It reveals a woman of intellect, courage, determination and feeling; the personal behind the political.

From her teenage years in New York, to her historic Supreme Court nomination, fierce advocacy for reproductive rights and serving alongside Clinton, Obama and Trump – RBG: Of Many, One sheds light on the woman behind the public figure.

Simon Hinton, Merrigong Theatre Company's Artistic Director and CEO, said, “I’m so thrilled we are able to bring our Wollongong audience this extraordinary show. Playwright Suzie Miller on her own streak of incredible international success, has drawn an insightful, funny, and moving portrait of a legal and cultural icon. The wonderful Heather Mitchell more than meets the challenge of portraying RBG, giving one of the greatest performances to be seen on Australian stages for some decades. It’s truly unmissable theatre, which is why it has sold out across the country”.

On the heels of Prima Facie which took London’s West End by storm, Olivier Award-winning playwright Suzie Miller continues her interrogation of complex human stories, with the luminous Heather Mitchell reprising her role, painting a vibrant portrait of one of the most iconic women of our time.

Directed by Priscilla Jackman (White Pearl, Still Point Turning), Wollongong will experience an intimate, behind-the-curtain audience with the woman who changed the face of the American legal system.
