JOY Presents: The Shoe Horn Sonata by John Misto
Directed by Alison Knight.
8:00PM Thursday 9 August, Unicorn Theatre, Lechte Road, Mount Waverley
In 1945, Sheila and Bridie were freed from a Japanese PoW camp after three years. Fifty years later, Sheila and Bridie are reunited to recall their experiences for a TV documentary. What they expect in coming together after many years apart is to relive their memories; the hardships, horrors and tenuous achievements, as well as the humor and daring that was necessary to their survival. What they did not expect was to uncover a devastating secret that both divided and haunted them for half a century.

John Misto’s play incorporates an array of dramatic techniques, both visual and auditory, to bring to life the extraordinary experiences of extraordinary women; stories of survival, Australian/ British rivalry and of optimism. Underscoring the story telling is music of the era, conveying the joy, creativity and fortitude of desperate women in the camp and an array of photograph memorabilia that provides us with historical references and reminders of the horror of the experience.

The Shoe-Horn Sonata can be seen as a living memorial dedicated to the brave and often forgotten Australian female war heroes who endured torture and captivity. The play’s longevity ensures their sacrifices will not be forgotten.

For your chance to win a double pass, fill in the form below. Remember, you must be a JOY Member to win.

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

JOY and SBS Radio combine forces for Sydney Mardi Gras parade weekend

LGBTI community radio station JOY is joining forces with SBS Radio for a Mardi Gras weekend takeover, including a live broadcast of the 40th anniversary parade of the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras.

The parade commentary team was announced today. It consists of the first out-and-proud winner of Big Brother Australia, Benjamin Norris; cabaret performer and executive producer of JOY’s nightly current affairs show The informer Dean Arcuri; and the hosts of Australia’s only lesbian drive radio show, Dano and Mason. This team will cross to a street team throughout the parade: Melbourne comedy duo the Tag Team.

Benjamin Norris said, “I am really pumped to be part of the commentary team for the 40th anniversary. It’s also the first Mardi Gras since marriage equality legislation passed, so I reckon the vibe will be amazing. I’m so proud to be able to relay that to the world.” When asked what people can expect from the broadcast, Ben said, “Knowing me and the rest of the team, expect to hear a fun, camp, Gogglebox style of commentary as we all just say what we are seeing and thinking. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”

Speaking about the partnership with JOY, SBS’s Manager of Audio & Language Content, Mark Cummins, said, “We are excited to be handing the mic over to JOY 94.9 for the Mardi Gras parade. It is a great addition to SBS’s suite of Mardi Gras programming, and will help us bring the parade to more people and across more platforms than ever before, as well as honouring our commitment to provide diverse and entertaining content to all Australians.”

 

JOY’s Program Director, Chris Tait, said, “It’s an honour for the team and JOY to be given the opportunity to commentate the parade to Australia and the world, and we don’t take it lightly. A lot of preparation has already gone and will continue to go into this broadcast. And although the parade is the jewel in the crown, we are running a four-day broadcast to celebrate 40 years of Mardi Gras, with specialised content over the whole weekend coming from Melbourne and Sydney. So watch this space.”

JOY 94.9 is broadcast in Melbourne on 94.9 FM, online at joy.org.au and via the JOY and iHeartRadio apps.

SBS Radio 3 is broadcast on DAB+ digital radio, on digital TV, online and via the SBS Radio app.

The broadcast will also be picked up by the Community Radio Network.
