★★★★ "One-woman show brings ancestors' voices to arresting life." Sydney Morning Herald/The Age.

Sandy Greenwood's "family saga about four generations of Salt Water women is a triumph", "the sold out audience was riveted to our seats" Monique Grbec/Witness Performance.

"Matriarch was a testament to the extraordinary power of storytelling and song." Arts Review.

Matriarch is a dynamic, one woman show that illuminates the strength and resilience of four generations of Gumbaynggirr women. The play explores cultural identity, inter-generational trauma and what it means to be a fair skin black woman in contemporary Australia.
