Exploring one of the most colourful times in Australian history - the arrival of the Greeks!

'A far-reaching generational story that crosses divides, ignites memories and pulls at your heart-string - the true spirit of the migrant experience' - Stage Whispers

Direct from a sell-out season at Adelaide Cabaret Festival, A Migrant’s Son is a true story exploring migration from Greece to Australia during the 1930s. This extraordinary new work conveys incredible historical events that are brought to life through original compositions, creating a unique and touching account that is both hard-hitting and hilarious.

Written and performed by award-winning cabaret star Michaela Burger (Exposing Edith), this is a tale about a man, the son of a poor migrant, who defied all odds and rose above adversity. From early morning deliveries for the family bakery at age seven, down opal mines in Coober Pedy and opening a chain of discount supermarkets, his unrelenting determination to build a successful life is comical and dramatic; as he pushes through like an unstoppable force and is willing to sacrifice everything for his family.
Featuring traditional instruments, including bouzouki, the show touches deeply on topics of racism, intolerance, judgement and the struggles presented by migration. Spanning nearly 90 years, it presents the audience with a deep appreciation of what Australia has offered migrants of past generations and of today.

'Burger’s emotionally powered narrative was one of the most passionate and heartfelt I’ve seen in any cabaret show!' - Arts Review
