Leah Purcell is one of our most versatile talents, equally at home on the page, stage and screen. Her work has transported audiences for decades, from seminal films like Radiance and Lantana to recent television triumphs like High Country.

The evolution of Leah’s writing continues to blaze a trail across Australian arts, particularly as it transforms across mediums; The Drover’s Wife was first a multi-award-winning play, then bestselling novel, followed by a motion picture that was written, directed and starred Leah.

Leah has been nominated as one of the 100 figures shaping Australia’s creative future, and we are immensely excited to welcome her in conversation with another of our great storytellers, Tony Birch.
