The Knowing of Mary Poppins

Winner of three Matilda Awards, The Knowing of Mary Poppins is a unique and magical journey into the life and imagination of P.L Travers, the Queensland-born author of Mary Poppins.

Before Walt Disney tamed Mary Poppins, the original character was a study in contradictions. The real Mary Poppins character was comforting and threatening; conventional and peculiar; down to earth and literally out of this world.

Travers herself was as contradictory as her heroine. Throughout her life she was an actress, a writer of children's books and erotic poetry, a journalist and a spiritualist. Just when you think you have P.L Travers pinned down, she steps out of the light to leave you pondering life's secrets.

Through this award-winning theatrical experience re-discover one of your favourite childhood memories and the story behind its Australian creator.
