Edward and Richard: The True Story of the Princes in the Tower

AD 1483. Edward and Richard, the eldest sons of the late King Edward IV, have been arrested and imprisoned in the Tower of London. Their mother, Elizabeth Woodville (Susan Ellis), fears for her life. She was once Queen of England; now, she has fled with her daughters to Westminster Abbey. The Usurper’s gaze is fixed upon her final destruction.

Opera meets psychological horror in Alexander Voltz’s “whodunit” retelling of history’s eeriest mystery. Michelle Carey directs an all-star Brisbane cast as Bradley Voltz leads from the piano. ‘Edward and Richard: The True Story of the Princes in the Tower’ is not to be missed.

National Pyjama Day 2021

SAVE THE DATE… The comfiest day of the year is coming!

National Pyjama Day is all about wearing your favourite pair of PJ’s to help The Pyjama Foundation raise much-needed awareness and funds for children in foster care.

With the money raised from National Pyjama Day, you’ll be helping us offer learning skills to more than 1000 children, fund educational resources and help provide stable, positive relationships.

The process is easy: simply register your interest to receive your FREE Pyjama Day host kit. Your host kit will be filled with everything you need to plan, promote and organise your event. Then set up your fundraising page, drum up some donations, and get to planning your event.

Events are totally flexible and can be run anytime throughout the months of July and August. You don’t even have to hold a physical event – once you’ve set up your fundraising page, the world is your oyster! Do something bold in your PJs and ask your friends to donate – it’s as easy at that!

Make sure you take some pics of your event and tag us using the hashtag #InMyPJs to be featured on our page and in our Annual Report!

There are more than 48,000 children in Foster Care in Australia. Many of these children have missed out on stable, positive and healthy family relationships and stable schooling. More than one quarter (25.6%) of children in care report having problems at school that they have been unable to get help with. The most common unresolved problem is with their schoolwork (43.6%). We need YOUR help to reduce these statistics.
