Set in 1966, on the evening of the last ever Tivoli performance in Sydney, veteran star Evie May recalls the events that lead her from obscurity in regional Western Australia to the bright lights of the Australian variety circuit. Forced to run away at an early age during WWII, Evie has spent her life trying to escape the pain of the past. As the final curtain comes down on the Tivoli – and everything that has come to define her – she struggles to find her place in a world that no longer values her.

EVIE MAY offers a compelling take on memory, motherhood and the fascinating characters of Australia’s rich theatrical history.
