Whip smart. Whip sure. Formidable, sexy and as mad as hell, Miles Franklin has been a beacon for Australian feminists for a century, since the moment her greatest creation, Sybylla, whipped her suitor Harry Beecham across the face and declared her intentions to become a writer.
THE WHIP is a new work by Belloo Creative that melds the iconic images of 'My Brilliant Career' (book and film) with the many secret lives of Miles - lover of women, tireless crusader for Australian writers, curmudgeon and iconoclast.
Told from the perspective of a newly-formed feminist club of young women and imbued with all of the physicality and heightened aesthetic of Belloo Creative, THE WHIP will shock, arouse and provoke.
