Camerata – Queensland’s Chamber Orchestra brings to life the feisty Nancy Wake (1912-2011) who ran away from her family in Australia at the age of 16, before becoming involved in the French Resistance. Her uncanny ability to move fearlessly and undetected through enemy lines attracted the pseudonym, “the white mouse”, and earned her the notoriety of eventually topping the Gestapo’s most wanted list.
The White Mouse is the next music-theatre biography in a series written by Tama Matheson.
Veronica Neave will feature in the title role, intertwining the story of an incredible Australian woman with music that is breathtaking, gripping and beautiful.
“I hate wars and violence, but if they come I don’t see why we women should just wave our men a proud goodbye and then knit them balaclavas.”
