Making Muriel

Making Muriel


It’s been 20 years since Toni Collette’s brilliantly awkward portrayal of ‘Muriel’ burst onto our screens, with her desperate dream to have the perfect wedding and escape dead-end Porpoise Spit. A generation on, Muriel’s Wedding remains one of Australia’s best-loved and most iconic films. So how do you recreate it for the stage and a new generation?

MAKING MURIEL follows acclaimed director PJ Hogan as he collaborates with Australia’s most innovative stage producers to turn much-loved feature film Muriel’s Wedding into a world-first stage musical.

Featuring interviews with the original film’s stars, Toni Collette and Rachel Griffiths, never-been-seen-before archive and interviews, and with unprecedented access to the Sydney Theatre Company.
