Umbrella Events is delighted to present Driftwood – The Musical. This epic story has been adapted for the stage by award-winning playwright Jane Bodie, based on the original memoir by Eva de Jong-Duldig. It features original music, lyrics and arrangements by Anthony Barnhill and lyrics by Tania de Jong AM and Jane Bodie. Acclaimed director Gary Abrahams brings a stellar cast to the stage.

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.
