"A far-reaching generational story that crosses divides, ignites memories & pulls at your heart-strings" Stage Whispers

Direct from a sell-out Adelaide Cabaret Festival season, A Migrant's Son explores one of the most colourful times in Australian history, the arrival of the Greeks! Brought to life through original compositions, live band & a community choir led by Carol Young, this unique & touching account is both hard-hitting & hilarious.

Created by award winning cabaret artist Michaela Burger (Exposing Edith), the show tells the story of a poor migrant, who defied all odds & rose above adversity. From deliveries for the family bakery at age seven to opal mines in Coober Pedy, he is an unstoppable force willing to sacrifice everything for family. "Strikingly original" The Advertiser
