Driftwood The Musical at Glen Street Theatre

May 24, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Umbrella Foundation is delighted to present Driftwood The Musical. Based on the  original memoir by Eva de Jong-Duldig and an original stage play by award-winning playwright Jane Bodie, this epic story traverses three continents and three generations.  Acclaimed Director Gary Abrahams brings a stellar cast to the stage with original music, lyrics and arrangements by Anthony Barnhill with additional lyrics by Tania de Jong AM and Jane Bodie.

Driftwood The Musical tells the inspirational story of the renowned Austrian-Australian sculptor Karl Duldig and his artist-inventor wife, Slawa Horowitz-Duldig. We follow their lives in pre-war Vienna, Slawa’s ingenious invention of the foldable umbrella, and an incredible chain of events as they rebuild their lives as artists in Australia following their miraculous escape from the Holocaust.

A magical story of art and creativity, survival and perseverance, family, freedom and love, and the endurance of the human spirit.

“The music is sublime. The acting and singing are superlative. This production is set to take the world by storm…” – Australian Stage

“…this show has heart.” – The Age


Based on the memoir of Eva de Jong-Duldig
